Children and teenagers are spending an increasing amount of their daily lives connected to smartphones and social media, which, for some, has raised concerns about how digital technology is influencing their personal development.

This fascinating event with Dr. Candice Odgers, Co-Director of the Child and Brain Development Program at the Canadian Institute for Advanced Research and Professor of Psychological Science and Informatics at the University of California Irvine, features a presentation and fireside chat about how exposure to digital technology and social media is influencing the health and development of our children.

Participants will gain valuable perspectives about social media use among adolescents, including how early, daily, and online experiences influence their health and development, and how new research can help to inform policies and interventions designed to promote the healthy development in people of all ages.
