Kenneth Ginsburg, M.D., a pediatrician specializing in Adolescent Medicine, will give a free public lecture in the auditorium at Francis Parker School on raising children to prepare them to thrive.

Ginsburg's research over the last two decades has focused on helping youth to develop their own solutions to social problems and to teach doctors how to better serve them.

Ginsburg will provide an overview of the "Seven C's Model of Resilience" focusing on communication strategies that teach parents to be positive forces in their children's lives.

The presentation starts at 7:30 p.m.
