News from The AAPG
First and foremost, AAPG wants to thank the panel of experts – Cynthia Medina, Ph.D.; Annmarie Hulette, Ph.D.; Gaby Silverstein, LMFT; Carol Wong, Ph.D. and Dina Frid, MD - who came to the Aragon Theater on January 16th to address the different mental health issues that our school age children are having, as well as available options to deal with them. The panel also provided expert opinions to those who attended the workshop on how to deal with depression, suicides and mourning of those who are affected by the recent untimely death of an Aragon student. AAPG has invited the panel to come back to Aragon and address the issue on Child Wellness during the Fall Semester of 2014. Please stay tune.
On a lighter note, as you may also aware 2014 Lunar New Year will begin Friday, January 31st. On behalf of all the board members of AAPG, we wish you all the happiness and prosperity during the Year of the Horse!
