In just a few short weeks, our first Mini-Conference will be here! On January 26th we will gather in Washington, DC to learn more about integrating mindfulness with neuroscience while working with children. Our Keynote speaker, Dr. Elizabeth Hoffman, is Program Manager of the national ABCD study (Adolescent Brain Cognitive Development) with the National Institutes of Health. She has an exciting and informative presentation planned for us that not only tells about where they are with the ABCD study, but also draws on her years of research and work with children. You won’t want to miss it!
