Ecker Hill Middle School students and parents will have a chance to learn about how electronics affects the human brain. Research shows the addictive impacts of using electronics on children’s neurological and emotional health.

Dr. Christy Kane will lead the presentation next Thursday from 6 to 8 pm at Ecker Hill Middle School.  She says the American College of Pediatrics published a report that less than five percent of our kids get appropriate physical exercise. Social media and gaming are thought to be one of the causes of the increase in obesity in children.

Our guest is Dr. Christy Kane, a licensed mental health counselor who practices in Utah County and in Salt Lake. Dr. Kane works with adults and teenagers and offers an interactive workshop regarding how the electronic world we live in creates addiction and affects the neurological development of the human brain. She gives evidence-based research on brain functioning, how electronics impact neurotransmitters in the brain, and how to mitigate the effects of electronic addiction. (Rebroadcast)
