The September issue of AUCD’s Nutrition Is for Everyone is out. HDC Nutrition Specialist Lauren Griffiths, who is now full-time at HDC, has been hard at work to develop a partnership with Second Harvest Food Bank. Ms. Griffiths has also been working with Master’s of Public Health student and former educator Lisa Staples (with whom she is pictured) on Staples’ Little Bitty Learning program. The program targets parents of children enrolled in HDC’s Early Head Start Child Care Partnership and offers the parents nutrition education as part of the 10-week curriculum required of Early Head Start parents.

On August 25, 2017, the new 2017-2018 trainees and faculty in HDC’s Leadership Education in Neurodevelopmental Disabilities (LEND) attended their first seminar of the year featuring guest speaker Al Condeluci, Ph.D.  Dr. Condeluci, an internationally recognized expert in the field of neurodevelopmental disabilities, brought his brand of self-promotion through building social capital to HDC for the second time, and a great conversation was had by all as a premonition of an exciting school year to come for the trainees.
