WeCare Speaker At The Grauer School: Dr. John Ratey
Dr. John Ratey, a psychiatry professor at Harvard Medical School and one of the world's foremost authorities on the brain-fitness connection, spoke at Grauer on Thursday, December 6. He told the audience of families from across San Diego County about the numerous studies that show exercise is key to achieving optimal physical and mental health. Dr. Ratey says he is on a world-wide mission to re-engineer schools, corporations and individual lifestyle practices to include more exercise.
Dr. Ratey signed copies of his two recent books, "Spark: The Revolutionary New Science of Exercise and the Brain" and "Go Wild: Free Your Body and Mind from the Afflictions of Civilization".
The event was presented by the WeCare consortium of independent San Diego schools. In February, WeCare will present a talk by Dr. Christopher Willard on "Teaching Mindfulness and Resilience in Children."
