Beautiful Mind Day — It was a Special Opportunity for Children and Adolescents

Dr. Rumeet Billan spoke to more than 150 grade 6-12 students and their family members online at two sessions on Apr. 26. The topic of her discussion was “Who Do I Want to Become?”  This interactive, online session was based on Dr. Billan’s award-winning book of the same name.  She discussed pathways, ways to be a leader and how to care for oneself during this difficult time.
