CHEO Connects Series in partnership with the OCDSB

April 2, 2012

 

“CHEO Connects” is a free information series for parents which will provide trusted information and access to local experts.  Six evening events will roll out over the 2011/2012 school year — each covering key physical & mental health topics for a specific age group.

“There is an overwhelming amount of information for parents out there in magazines, websites and on television,” said Michel Bilodeau, president and chief executive officer, CHEO. “CHEO is working to help parents sort through the volume and complexity, and learn about the key physical and mental health issues that impact their kids.”

The OCDSB has partnered with CHEO as part of its ongoing Speakers’ Series. The speakers’ series is sponsored by the Ottawa-Carleton District School Board’s Parental Involvement Committee with financial support from the Ministry of Education.
