The NPENP district, in partnership with Children and Screens: Institute of Digital Media and Child Development, will be hosting a parent workshop on April 1 at 7 p.m. in the Northport High School Large Cafeteria. The presentation, entitled Children and Screens: Guidelines for your Tech-Savvy Child, will feature presentations by:

Dr. Pam Hurt-Della Pietra, the president of Children and Screens: Institute of Digital Media and Child Development, who seeks to empower our society with the tools necessary to maximize children’s benefits from digital media and minimize their risks. Dr. Della Pietra has used her medical degree, non-profit experience, and long-standing interest in media and children, to become one of the field’s leading conveners, curators, and grant-makers, and will be sharing her knowledge with workshop-attendees.

Dr. Lauren Hale, a local Northport mom, is a professor of Family, Population, and Preventive Medicine and core faculty in the public health program at Stony Brook University. In her federally funded research, she studies the social patterning of sleep and how it contributes to disparities in health and well-being, and will be summarizing existing research on screens and teen sleep health.
