Goldie Hawn to give public lecture on 'The Brain and the Optimistic Classroom' at Aspen Brain Forum

Actress Goldie Hawn, founder of The Hawn Foundation, will present a lecture for the public at the Second Annual Aspen Brain Forum, a conference jointly sponsored by the New York Academy of Sciences and the Aspen Brain Forum Foundation. Hawn will speak about the MindUP curriculum, the Foundation's signature educational initiative now published by Scholastic.
