“Minding our Health in the Cyber Age: The impact of multitasking on our well-being” will report on recent startling research and scientific data about some of the negative impacts digital distraction and multitasking are having on our behaviour and neurological capacities.

The evening includes the presentation, a Q&A, and short performances by the Lafayette String Quartet. Reserve seats at: lafayettestringquartet.ca
