Psychology Lecturer Dr. Francisco Magdaleno will visit the Ojai Library at 1 p.m. on Saturday, September 14, 2019, to deliver a presentation titled “The Importance of Health & Wellness During Pregnancy.” Dr. Magdaleno comes to us from CSU Channel Islands (CI) as part of this season’s CI Library Lecture Series.

Time in our mother’s womb plays a crucial role in our development, and many things, such as taste preferences and language abilities, are shaped before we are even born. In this talk, Dr. Magdaleno will describe egg development in birds and what the study of bird eggs can teach us about human development. The effects of stress and nutrition during pregnancy will be discussed.

CSU Channel Islands hosts dozens of free public lectures at libraries throughout Ventura County as part of this program. The lecturers are experts from numerous departments at CI, including Biology, History, English, Computer Science, Political Science, Performing Arts, and Sociology to name a few.

This event is free and open to the public. For additional information, contact Ron Solórzano, Regional Librarian, at (805) 218-9146.

The Ojai Library is located at 111 East Ojai Avenue in Ojai, CA. Hours of service are 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. Friday through Sunday.
