Child abuse is topic of educational forum

Amanda Fulk, Correspondent

Wilkes University will host guest speaker Karen Lindsey as part of “The Gardner Educational Forum Series,” which helps to provide a better understanding of what education can be.

Robert S. and Judith A. Gardner will present one of the lectures throughout the series featuring Lindsey from the Wilkes-Barre’s Victim’s Resource Center.

The lecture will focus on “Child Abuse & Mandatory Reporting” and will be held at 4:30 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 13, 2014, in the Arnaud C. Marts Center, Room 214.

“We believe that these experiences offer opportunities to be other places and hear other voices. These are powerful experiences that help people understand what education can be,” Robert Gardner, said.

Additional lectures will be taking place throughout the duration of the spring semester. All lectures are free to the public. For further information, contact Robert Gardner at (570) 408-4686.
