Fill the Bus School Supply Drive | August 4-5 Communities in Schools (CIS) of Nevada, along with partners KSNV News 3, KOMP 92.3, 97.1 The Point, Super Shuttle, Nevada State Bank, Girl Nation Hosts Las Vegas Premier of “Screenagers” It’s become abundantly clear that social media and the overuse of the internet has a profound impact on our lives, particularly those of teenagers. A new documentary, “Screenagers”, explores this phenomenon and how it specifically affects the education, family life, friendships and personal safety of teens. The film is only avail- able through community events, and the Las Vegas-based non- profit Girl Nation, in partnership with The Temple Sinai Las Vegas, is offering the community a premier screening on August 31 at The Adelson Educational Campus (9700 Hillpointe Rd.). In the documentary, producer Delaney Ruston, also a physician and parent, intertwines humor with discussions from psychologists, education experts, scientists and authors to educate teenagers and parents on how social media impacts a teen’s development, as well as solutions to parents to help direct their children towards a more balanced life in a digital world. After the screening, Dr. Carli Snyder, founder of Girl Nation and a board-certified clin- ical psychologist specializing in young women’s issues, along with Rabbi Malcolm Cohen, will hold a Q & A session covering such topics as online bul- lying, which social media platform has the most negative impact on a teen, video gaming, sleep and internet use, internet addiction and how a teen’s self-esteem is tied into “likes” and “comments”. The event is free and open to people from fourth grade up. Visit www.itsgirlnation.com for more info. The Azul Piña Colada Southwest Gas and Sam’s Club, invite the community to help them col- 2 oz.
