Dr. T. Berry Brazelton Symposium and 100th Birthday Celebration

02/07/2018 8:59 PM | Sophie O'Connell (Administrator)

Join the Brazelton Touchpoints Center on Monday, April 23rd for a truly unique and engaging celebration of the life, impact, and 100th birthday of Dr. T. Berry Brazelton, a revolutionary figure in the fields of pediatrics, child development, and family engagement!

The Symposium will feature a lineup of speakers who work on the frontlines of social justice with children and families, and are – in their own ways – carrying forward into the future the guiding principles of Dr. Brazelton’s legacy: ·

  • Geoffrey Canada, President of the ground-breaking Harlem Children’s Zone, a national model for empowering families and children
  • Sandra Gutierrez, Founder and National Director of Abriendo Puertas / Opening Doors, the nation’s first evidence-based training program developed by and for Latino parents
  • Andrew Solomon, Professor of Clinical Psychology at Columbia University Medical Center, President of the PEN American Center, leading LGBT rights activist, and author of the best-selling book Far From the Tree: Parents, Children, and the Search for Identity
  • Tarajean Yazzie-Mintz, Vice President for Program Initiatives at the American Indian College Fund, the nation’s largest charity supporting Native higher education

The evening will feature a fete to honor Dr. T. Berry Brazelton on his 100th birthday.

Sponsorship opportunities are available for the event, as are individual tickets to both the Symposium and the 100th birthday celebration. In the spirit of Berry’s curiosity for learning and knowledge sharing, individuals are also invited to consider becoming a “ticket angel” so that those in service and in training to serve families, and who would otherwise be unable to, can join in the celebration and exchange of ideas and information!
