Fatima here! I have some exciting news to share! Our very own Dr. Rula Kahil will be presenting at the UTM "Lecture Me" talk!
Brief Description:Based on RISE Team research with Syrian newcomer families, Dr. Kahil's presentation will draw attention to an understudied population: Syrian refugee grandmothers. Drawing from interviews with Syrian newcomer mothers and grandmothers in the GTA and Peel region, Dr. Kahil will discuss how essential grandmothers are in the settlement process. Dr. Kahil will also provide insight into the influence grandmothers have on the emotional well-being of their daughters and granddaughters. She will further discuss a unique case study of a four generation Syrian newcomer family.
The event will be hosted at the Mississauga Central library, located at 301 Burnhamthrope Road West on Tuesday, November 5th, 2019 from 7:00 PM- 8:30 PM.
No registration is required. All are welcome to attend!
RISE Team and I are all very excited to attend! We hope to see you there!
