The Atrium School in Watertown is hosting a lecture by Catherine Steiner-Adair, EdD, called "Raising Healthy Daughters: Educating Smart Girls to Outsmart Unhealthy Girl Culture." Although educators are making huge strides in closing the academic gap between girls and boys, girls are bombarded by cultural messages and images that leave academically talented girls vulnerable to making psychologically risky, unhealthy choices outside the classroom. This workshop will address the necessity of educating girls beginning in elementary school through high school to be culturally savvy and literate. Participants will learn about new research and curricula developed toward this and best practices for parents, teachers and counselors. Tues., April 9, 6:30 - 8:30 p.m. Adults. Free. Atrium School, 69 Grove St., Watertown. www.atrium.org
