On March 10, 2015, we were treated to a remarkable presentation by Dr. Kevin McCauley.
During the school-day hours, Dr. McCauley gave a presentation to 50 Hatboro-Horsham High School students about the challenge of deciding whether addiction is a choice or a disease . . . or both? Students fromKinesiology, Psychology, and Advance Placement (AP) Biology classes were given the opportunity to register for the lecture on a first-come, first served basis. After his lecture, students from the HH Conversation club had a private lunch with Dr. McCauley and engaged in a very stimulating conversation about the challenges of addiction co-occuring with psychological disorders, of technology and gaming addictions, and much more.
In the evening, Dr. McCauley was the featured speaker for Be a Part of the Conversation’s 16th public event in the Hatboro-Horsham community. More than 100 guests gathered for his presentation, and many of the slides from that presentation can be viewed here.
After a very informative – and at times quite moving – question and answer session, Dr. McCauley received a standing ovation from the participants. The feedback from the collected surveys makes it clear that we will definitely be extending an invitation to Dr. McCauley to return to our neck of the woods in the future. Please stay tuned!
