Solving the mystery of the teenage brain

-A A +A
By The Staff

The teenage brain is a mystery to any parent who has a young adult.

Teenagers seem to lose their minds and parents wonder if they ever get them back. The answer rest assured is yes.

On Saturday, the Los Alamos Juvenile Justice Advisory Board and UNM-LA in conjunction with partnering agencies will sponsor a symposium on the teenage brain, with two free presentations.

JJAB Coordinator Debbie Gill knows that education is key in this community.

“When we realized we had a budget for a public education event, our first response at JJAB was to maximize the use of the money to bring community wide benefit,” Gill said.

The JJAB along with Family Strengths Network, UNM-LA, LANL, the Bradbury Science Museum, Los Alamos Public Schools, the Community Health Council and local Public Health Nurse Megan Pfeffer led the charge to organize the free event.

FSN’s Susan Mack heard Abigail Baird speak two years ago, and the seed was planted.

“I had to give Los Alamos an opportunity to hear what she has to offer. Her research is up-to-date and her presentation is engaging,” Mack said.

Mack also credits Gill with being able to make it happen.
