KPR's Parent Conference goes virtual
Joining the Virtual Parent Conference is easier than ever
Please join us at KPR’s free Virtual Parent Conference, which will be held:
Saturday, October 17
9 a.m.-11 a.m.
Theme: Drop the Worry Ball
Featuring Dr. Alex Russell
Dr. Russell is a clinical psychologist, well known and engaging speaker, and co-author of the book Drop the Worry Ball: How to Parent in the Age of Entitlement.
To make joining the Virtual Parent Conference as easy as possible for everyone, separate registration will not be required. You will be able to “tune in” directly to the Parent Conference, the morning of the event on October 17, by simply clicking on the following link:
In addition, KPR will be recording Dr. Russell’s presentation and posting it on our website, the week after the Parent Conference, for those unable to participate in the live, real-time event. Our website also will include links to information and resources provided by agencies that serve families across KPR.
If you need assistance, have questions or if there are accommodations that would make the conference more accessible for you, please email email@example.com or call 705-742-9773 or toll-free 1-877-741-4577, ext. 2018.
