Meet Dr. Ron Manderscheid!
Join us for a new series in our monthly networking conversations, called "Profiles in Behavioral Health Leadership.” This series is designed to highlight inspirational leaders who are eager to share their personal leadership journey and the things that make them tick. You’ll gain valuable insight into the lessons they've learned, their proudest achievements, and how they maintain the passion and drive to cultivate healing, wellness, and recovery through their work.
The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) Center of Excellence on Social Media and Youth Mental Health was formed in 2022 from a five-year grant from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA). Through this webinar, Center Ambassador Dr. Libby Milkovich, MD, FAAP will provide an overview of the risks and benefits of social media, how it impacts youth wellbeing, and the implications concerning the current narrative. She will be joined by Jessica Lee, a sophomore at the University of California Irvine, who is a member of the Center’s Youth Advisory Panel (YAP).
Register to learn more about the Center of Excellence’s guiding framework, current activities, what the Center’s YAP is saying, and resources that can be shared with your communities.
