Parent University Offers Wealth of Parenting Support

Workshops with advice on topics from bullying to teen alcohol use and more will include helpful insight from Dean Family Medicine providers, local educators and community leaders

Raising healthy, happy kids is no easy task, which is why Dean Clinic is again joining forces with area educators and community leaders for Parent University.

The 2014 Parent University will take place Saturday, March 15 from 8:30 a.m. to noon at the Rome Corners Intermediate School, located at 1111 South Perry Parkway in Oregon.

Parent University is free for families with kids of all ages. This year’s event will include workshops and lectures on:

  • Parenting the Love and Logic Way  for All Ages
  • Bullying Behavior and What to Do
  • What Can Alcohol Do to My Teen’s Brain?
  • Navigating the Medical Internet
  • Sports Injuries: Prevention and Care
  • Much, much more!

Dr. Zorba Paster will deliver a keynote presentation at 9:30 a.m. His Dean Clinic – Oregon Family Medicine partners Dr. Joanna Bisgrove and Dr. Laura Mendyk will also be presenting throughout the morning.

Workshops and open dialog between parents and presenters helps shine a light on the important role educators, primary care providers and other community leaders have in raising healthy, happy kids.

“Raising healthy, intelligent and well-rounded children is a team effort between primary care providers, parents, school educators and community leaders,” says Dr. Bisgrove. “It’s that ‘it takes a village to raise a family’ philosophy.”

“I often feel that I don’t have time to discuss all of the issues involved with normal development during an office visit,” adds Dr. Mendyk. “This is a chance to get out into the community and connect with parents who live in Oregon and the surrounding communities.”

Parent University is a free event focused on school aged families, but families of any age are welcome to attend. 

Advance registration is encouraged. Onsite childcare is available to families who register in advance. To register, please call (608) 835-4097.

This year’s event is sponsored by Dean Clinic – Oregon, the Oregon School District, Oregon Public Library, OregonCARES, McFarland School District, E.D. Locke Public Library, McFarlandCARES, Stoughton Hospital, Stoughton School District and StoughtonCARES.
