Event description

Description

Kelly McGonigal, PhD, Stanford University, will discuss her latest research and new book, Born to Move: The Scientific Link Between Movement, Joy, and Belonging, on how physical activity can lead to joy and belonging–if we open our minds and bodies to it.

Dr. McGonigal is a health psychologist and lecturer at Stanford University. As a pioneer in the field of "science-help," her mission is to translate insights from psychology and neuroscience into practical strategies that support personal well-being and strengthen communities.

She is the author of several books, including the international bestsellers “The Willpower Instinct” and “The Upside of Stress.” Her 2013 TED talk, "How to Make Stress Your Friend," is one of the Most Viewed TED talks of all time, with over 18 million views.

Parents, students, educators, and community members welcome! Free admission and light refreshments. Spanish interpretation will be provided.

M-A Parent Education Series events are sponsored by M-A PTA, Sequoia Healthcare District, and Sequoia Union High School District.
