)-- Mary A. Baird, president and CEO of The Ophelia Project, has been tapped to present at the Adagio Health You First Breakfast Series on Friday, June 15, 2007 in Pittsburgh. Baird will present an overall picture of The Ophelia Project’s role in creating safe social climates and preventing non-physical aggression with an emphasis on the language of relational aggression, the consequences of aggressive behavior and strategies for youth and adults.
“We are very excited to have Mary Baird of The Ophelia Project as a speaker in our You First breakfast series. The work done by Ms. Baird and The Ophelia Project fits in with both the vision of our agency as a community educator and our mission to serve women and families. We look forward to a thought provoking presentation that will inspire our guests -- both parents and educators -- to begin their own bullying prevention work,” said Richard L. Baird, Jr., president and CEO of Adagio Health.
“Adagio Health and The Ophelia Project share a combined goal of developing healthy people and educating communities. This engagement is an opportunity to teach community members in Pittsburgh about addressing one of the unhealthiest behaviors affecting our youth today: relational aggression,” said Baird.
