The Brigham Young University College of Family, Home and Social Sciences will host the third annual Marjorie Pay Hinckley Endowed Chair Lecture Thursday, Feb. 8, at 7 p.m. in the Joseph Smith Building Auditorium.
Kristin Anderson Moore, president and senior scholar of Child Trends, a nonprofit research organization, will speak on “Child and Family Well-Being: A New Look.” The lecture will be free and the public is welcome.
A reception in the Joseph Smith Building lobby will follow Moore’s presentation.
Moore is a social psychologist and a leading researcher of children and families. Her fields of study include sexual behavior, teen childbearing, non-voluntary sex and statutory rape, family structure and fertility. She also established the National Campaign to Prevent Teen Pregnancy and started the Research-to-Results program at Child Trends, which focuses on the implementation and improvement of effective curriculums within the company.
The Marjorie Pay Hinckley Endowed Chair in Social Work and the Social Sciences was established in 2004 to honor Sister Hinckley’s service and contributions to the field. The chair seeks to focus on the family through research and education, expand learning through lecture and mentored learning, increase community involvement and provide service to the university.
