Reminder: SafeLaunch takes place on Monday

Correction: The SafeLaunch event will take place on MONDAY, October 17.

The SafeLaunch mission is to protect youth from drugs and alcohol because the adolescent brain is up to 600 percent more susceptible to addiction than one that is fully developed. This coming Monday, October 17, 2016, at 5:30 p.m. SafeLaunch and Santa Barbara Unified School District will present renowned brain researcher and author D.C. McGuire at the historic Marjorie Luke Theatre.

Community resource tables will open at 5:30. Early bird dinner from El Zarape Restaurant will be provided from 5:30-6:00 p.m. for $5 per person.

All parents will have the chance to win $25,000 and other great door prizes at this informative, entertaining talk. Why? Because parenting can and should be fun.

D.C. (Donna-Christine) McGuire, will inspire parents with insights from her research on cognition, behavior and decision making. She will demystify the complexity of brain science.

Ms. McGuire has been engaged in research and clinical practice for over 10 years with a particular focus on the effects of dopamine on the human brain. She has worked with individuals and businesses, as well as numerous public and private organizations applying neuroscience-based solutions to challenging issues.

The Marjorie Luke Theatre is located on Santa Barbara Junior High School campus, 721 E. Cota Street, Santa Barbara.

Time: 5:30-8:00 p.m.
