Reading Time: < 1 minute

Last Friday afternoon, over 60 Laurier students attended the 6th annual Hunsberger Memorial Lecture held in Bricker Academic 101. Guest speaker Barbara Fiese delivered a developmental psychology lecture entitled “Family Routines and Rituals: Everyday Opportunities to Build Health and Wellbeing.”

Fiese discussed how basic family routines are linked to biological health, particularly in children.

“Health really is a family affair,” she explained.

“Families experience life as trying to balance all of life’s competing demands. We’re not a one-size-fits-all kind of world.”
