On March 23rd, the Community ENgaged Texas Research ALliance (CENTRAL) organized a Symposium on
Fostering Resilience In Families And Communities
CENTRAL’s grand challenge is to revolutionize how we learn and share knowledge about individuals, families and communities.
Fostering healthy development in individuals, families and communities is a CENTRAL goal.
How do we better capture the essence of the human experience? How do we transform data into knowledge? How do we integrate the needs of communities with science to support and engage with youth and families? Transforming our approach to this science starts with a conversation.
We have gathered scholars, community leaders and policy makers for a day-long symposium, with a focus on scientific progress in the study of adversity and resilience, the way in which innovations in technology can be used to better assess environments and health, and the essential role of community engagement in promoting better science and intervention. Please join us for an informative, interactive day of learning together.
Session themes include:
Breaking the Cycle of Early Life Adversity
Biological Impact of the Environment
Sensing the World Around Us
Promoting Well Being and Engaging Communities
Austin Lived Experience: A Panel Discussion
Community Systems and Organizations: A Panel Discussion
