Presentation synopsis: “I will review the overall study design, show preliminary data from cognitive and achievement tests, and show changes in brain structure and function associated with participation in the Arrowsmith program. Last I will update everyone as to future studies that we have planned. These include consideration of how the program affects social and emotional learning and impacts neuropsychological function.”
The presentation will be followed by a question and answer session. Please note that the final results of this research study are still in the process of being analyzed at this time and therefore Dr. Boyd will not be presenting findings at that level.

This session will also be live streamed so as to reach all those interested in this presentation around the world.

* Live streaming begins at 6:30pm PDT on June 13th. The EDT equivalent is Monday June 13th at 9:30pm and AEST (Australian Eastern Standard Time) is Tuesday June 14th at 11:30am.
