Speaker Series

Our Speaker Series is held monthly from October through May.

Lectures focus on broad topics relevant to all our members. Held at venues in Wellesley, lectures begin with a social hour with wine and hors d’oeuvres, followed by a presentation and a Q&A session.

Seminars focus on more specific topics like sleep issues, sibling rivalry, and picky eating solutions. Also held at venues in Wellesley, typically the Wellesley College Club, seminars include a social hour with wine and hors d’oeuvres. The speaker’s presentation includes a Q&A session.
