Stress seems to be ever-present in today’s world. While at times this can be transformed into a positive force and motivator, high levels can have deleterious effects, particularly in children. This year’s Katherine White Symposium explores the medical facets of toxic stress in our youth and how we as medical providers, teachers, and parents can both identify and help alleviate the damage incurred by this under-recognized condition.
So we welcome you to join us, Friday, March 15 here at Miller Children’s Hospital Long Beach for this free half-day symposium.

and includes a registration form that maybe filled out and returned to me via fax, standard mail or email. Forward this to all whom you know will benefit from the information.

Planning Commission Study Session on the Housing Element!
For too long, Long Beach families have been playing by the rules, but quality housing remains out of reach and the whole community suffers. Long Beach needs comprehensive, citywide housing policies that meet the needs of all Long Beach residents. Residents, developers and city leaders should work together to provide opportunities for Long Beach families to have access to affordable, safe and healthy homes.
Join us next Thursday, March 7th at 5pm for a Planning Commission Study Session. The planning Commission of Long Beach helps set a path for the City of Long Beach's 2014-2021 Housing Element.
The Housing Element is a plan that lays out priorities for years to come, and it's YOUR opportunity to listen, learn, and let them know that we want safe, healthy and quality affordable housing for Long Beach residents!
Now is the time for Long Beach to take the opportunity and ensure quality and safe housing for all Long Beach Residents!
To RSVP, contact America at firstname.lastname@example.org.
