Learning Objectives:

  1. Review evidence-based benefits and risks from use of digital and social media
  2. Discuss health concerns and behavior outcomes linked with duration of media usage and digital content
  3. Develop skill set to provide guidance in developing a plan for open communication and a healthy balance
