Harve Rawson, Ph.D.

Harve is a developmental psychologist and former professor at Hanover College.  He created an internationally known summer program for children with special behavior problems and was twice named a Fulbright scholar,
(1988 & 1994).

Harve will present "Healing families: Our Children Are Our Future" and will use slides of families from around the world to address effective parenting techniques.  He will address current challenges of child rearing, parenting values, and explore parenting as an art and a science.  Harve will humorously address money and its role in parenting.

Cecile Masse, Ph.D.

Cecile is an organizational psychologist who specializes in trust.  Cecile has lived and worked with the Crow Indians in Montana.  She helped them learn to relate and work with "white people".  Cecile speaks fluent French and lives in Plant City, Florida.

Have you had a hard time trusting people? Want to learn how to re-establish trust?  Where do you stand in the trust area? Cecile will present "Building Intergenerational Trust,"  and will encourage attendees to do some "soul searching" about their own behavior and how it supports or diminishes trust.

Zita Supremant, M.D., MPH

Zita is a mother, Emergency physician, and public health educator.  She'll join us from Kansas City where she teaches at the KU Medical Center.  Zita also co-directs a fourth year medical student program which teaches students how to effect change in medical and public health issues.

Zita will present "Bridging Troubled Waters: Through Hope, Help and Healing Hands" including a slide presentation showing programs across America that have successfully helped children and communities.  Zita believes that community violence is a public health issue and not just a law enforcement issue or a criminal justice problem.

Steven Cherniske, M.S.

Steven is President of Oasis Wellness Network, has taught sports nutrition at the IronMan Training Camp, been a consultant to the US Olympic Team, and is an advisor to Ms Fitness.  He wrote The DHEA Breakthrough and Caffeine Blues.  Steven has coached 8000 people.

Steve will present "We Are What We Eat and Drink". Americans are creating a culture of addicted children.  Steven will debunk the myths surrounding caffeine and other drugs that affect peoples' behavior.  How well we live and how long we live may be related to the amount of caffeine we consume.

Ellen Taliaferro, M.D.

Ellen is an Emergency physician and Executive Director of Physicians for a Violence-Free Society in Dallas, and the Director of Violence and Injury Prevention at Parkland Memorial Hospital in Dallas.  Ellen is a member of the National Health Initiative on Domestic Violence and Health Care.

Are you interested in having fun for a lifetime in your profession?  Are you a provider concerned about burnout? Ellen will present "Healing the Wounded Healers".  She believes that active awareness and balance are keys to overcoming burnout.  Providers who learn and employ wellness techniques can grow, live happily, and make valuable contributions.
