Event description

Description

Join us for a talk with Dr. Michael Rich, Associate Professor of Pediatrics at Harvard Medical School, Associate Professor of Social and Behavioral Science at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, and a practitioner of Adolescent Medicine at Boston Children’s Hospital.

After graduating college, Rich worked as a former filmmaker in Japan for twelve years where he worked with director Akira Kurosawa (a Luce Scholarship sent him to Japan as an apprentice and assistant director) and then to Hollywood where he worked as a "script doctor". He became frustrated with writing scripts "by committee" and wanted to have a positive impact on the world. This led him to pre-med training and then medical school.

As The Mediatrician®, Dr. Rich offers research-based, balanced and practical answers to parents’, teachers’, and clinicians’ questions about children’s media use and the positive and negative implications for their health and development.

Dr. Rich will share how to encourage the children in your life to imagine, play, and think outside of the screen.

Doors will open at 6:45 PM.
