Resiliency is the ability to "bounce back" from stress, adversity, failure, challenges or even trauma. It's not something that kids either have or don't have; it's a skill that kids develop as thy grow and it can be learned. A pediatric psychologist from Nationwide Children's Hospital, who works with children and families affected by cancer, will address tips on how to build resilience in children and teens.

Also hear from Kyle Snyder, gold medalist, and world champion wrestler, on how he has "bounced back" when faced with challenges in his life and career.  

Brunch will be served. Following the program, you will attend the men's wrestling match. (which begins at 2pm at St. John Arena, across the street from The Blackwell) Tickets will be provided and parking is free behind St. John Arena.
