The Common Ground Speaker Series concludes the 2018–2019 season next week, with Dr. Michael Rich and Manoush Zomorodi presenting "Screensmart: Best Practices for Healthy Families" on Tuesday and Wednesday at three different venues in the Peninsula/South Bay area. The two will facilitate conversations about digital media and its impact, both positive and negative, on children and teens. They will offer research-based answers to questions about media use in the home and its impact on family health and child development. Rich, widely known as "The Mediatrician," is one of the nation’s top experts on children and media. Rich is the Founder and Director of the Center on Media and Child Health as well as a pediatrician, researcher, father and media aficionado. Zomorodi is co-founder of Stable Genius Productions, a media company with a mission to help people navigate personal and global change.
