Recent Faculty Publication

Book coverCongratulations to Dr. Barbara Meyers and Dr. Lydia Mays for their recent children’s book, The Long and the Short of It: A Tale About Hair. The book won two important awards including a Mom’s Choice award and a National Health Information Award.

This story reveals lessons about cancer related hair loss, friendship, generosity, patience, and much more. A wonderful and moving addition to children’s literature, this children’s tale is as helpful for adults as it is for children. At the end of the story, a list of concepts with corresponding page numbers is provided as a guide to encourage communication between adults and children.  Activities for children are also included.

Find out more about the book in this video featuring the authors.

    Congrats! I am only commenting to let you be aware of of the fantastic encounter our princess experienced going through the blog. She learned many things, not to mention what it is like to have an excellent giving style to get the others really easily completely grasp specific problematic topics. You really surpassed our own expectations.
