The first presentation will be held on Thursday, January 17 from 7:00-8:30 pm at the Westfield Public
Library. Entitled “This is Your Brain on Phones: Smartphone Overuse”, presenters Sean Foley of
Prevention Links, Kim Schumacher, Guidance Counselor at Roosevelt Intermediate School and Marc
Herzog from Papa Bear Digital Production will discuss the effects of smartphones on individuals and
what we can do to protect ourselves and our families. Broken into three sections, the presentation will
focus on how the current technological revolution effects our psychological behavior and neurological
systems; how screen time has changed how we think, act, react, learn and absorb information; and the
best practices for smartphone use from a health and well-being perspective.
The library presentations are free. Pre-registration is preferred.
