The Avielle Foundation is working on a video project called the Brainstorm Experience. The year-long series is dedicated to improving brain health through community engagement and education. These experiences are meant to enhance the understanding of the strengths and vulnerabilities of the brain.
Steve Gross from The Avielle Foundation will be first to present tonight, at Edmond Town Hall in Newtown. Gross is a leader in the field of psychological trauma response and a pioneer in utilizing meaningful relationships to overcome the devastating impact of early childhood trauma.
The Avielle Foundation is named for a child who was killed at Sandy Hook School. Avielle's father, Jeremy Richman, is a scientist who set up the Foundation to the study brain health.
The event is slated to go on as planned despite the weather.
