Sixpence to Host Screening of Documentary on Childhood Resilience

Sixpence will host a screening of "Resilience: The Biology of Stress and the Science of Hope" as part of the pre-conference activities for Recharge for Resilience this coming April at the Younes Convention Center in Kearney, NE. The documentary examines recent research into the biological impact of toxic stress on young children, and the broader range of social, economic and public health implications connected to this issue.

The film also chronicles the work of trailblazers in pediatrics, education and social welfare to bring practical, science- and field-tested strategies to confront this serious issue.

Pre-Conference Screening of "Resilience" Documentary: April 18 | 3:30-5:00 P.M. | Younes Conference Center
