Edward Hallowell to speak March 19

Mercer Island Parent Edge will present Dr. Edward Hallowell at 10 a.m., March 19, at the Mercer Island Presbyterian Church for a presentation based on his book, “Crazy Busy: Overstretched, Overbooked and About to Snap.”

Hallowell is an instructor at Harvard Medical School and founder of the Hallowell Center for Cognitive and Emotional Health.

Hallowell has been frequently featured on 20/20, Oprah, 60 Minutes, CNN, PBS, NPR, and in Newsweek and the New York Times.

Hallowell will offer insight into how and why being too busy has become a habit so entrenched that it leads to postponing or cutting short what matters most to you. Hallowell will offer practical advice and  strategies so that you can take charge of your family’s fast-paced life.

At 7 p.m., also on March 19, Dr. Hallowell will discuss his latest book, “Shine: Using Brain Science to Get the Best From Your People,”  at the Mercer Island High School Performing Arts Center.

Hallowell will speak about brain science, performance research and his own experience helping others to maximize their potential. Tickets are now on sale at Island Books, $10 per event for MI PTA members and $20 per event for nonmembers.

Parent Edge is a PTA group representing all Mercer Island School District and St. Monica schools.
