Ginsburg advocates building on children’s strengths by fostering their internal resilience. As a pediatrician, professor, director of health services in an agency that serves needy teens, and a parent, Ginsburg will address the question of how we as families help children develop the resilience they need to flourish and ultimately become happy, healthy and contributing adults, according to a news release from District 86.

The Community Speaker Series, presented by Hinsdale Township High School District 86, informs families in the K-12 community about issues in education, child development, wellness and parenting. This event is supported by District 181 Foundation, Hinsdale Central PTO and The Community House.
