Bay View Academy Hosts SCREENAGERS - Free and Open to the Public

On average, kids spend 6.5 hours per day looking at a screen. That doesn’t include schoolwork. What is this doing to our teens? And what can we do about it?

These are the questions that physician and filmmaker, Delaney Ruston, tackles in her documentary, SCREENAGERS. She’s been featured on PBS, Good Morning America, the Today Show and The Dr. Oz Show, as well as highlighted in the New York Times, the Washington Post and Forbes.

On March 30th, Dr. Ruston will be at Bay View Academy to present SCREENAGERS and talk with parents, students and teachers. This event is open to the public, free of charge. In addition to Dr. Ruston, Bay View welcomes a local panel of experts:

  • Dr. Justin Schleifer, Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist, Bradley Hospital
  • Special Assistant Attorney General Tim Healy, Chief of Juvenile Prosecution Unit in the RI Office of Attorney General
  • Tammy David, East Providence Police Department School Resource Officer
