Parenting in Challenging Times: Fighting Vaping

Dr. Natasha Burgert


Vaping is suddenly mainstream. In this webinar, board-certified pediatrician Dr. Natasha Burgert shares information on vaping and e-cig use, discusses the importance of proactive prevention, and shares practical ways to talk to children about this harmful habit. She reviews the basics of vaping, how it works, the product's history, and addiction concerns. Dr. Burgert helps parents figure out if a child might be vaping and what to do if they find their child with an e-cig device.


Natasha Burgert, MD, FAAP, is a board-certified pediatrician with a thriving private practice in Kansas City, MO. In addition to clinical work, she serves as a spokesperson for the American Academy of Pediatrics and as a member of the AAP’s Council of Communication and Media. She regularly shares evidence-based child health information on NBC Education Nation and U.S. News and World Report. Locally, she contributes to KCUR and the Missouri Advisory Council for Childhood Immunizations. Find out more about her work at KCKidsDoc.com.

Music Group

Liberty Academy is excited to offer music groups again through the Children's Services Fund! This started late spring and was a hit with a group of our kids at LA. This year, we have the capacity to offer THREE music groups of up to 12 students max in each group.

If your student is interested in checking this group out, please complete the permission slip (click HERE to get it) or have your student bring the permission slip home from school for you to sign.

The first group will meet on September 10th.

Please note: Music group is on a voluntary basis. A permission slip on file does not mean your child will ever be expected or forced to attend.

Thanks,
Mrs. Norris
