Thursday Lunch Speaker
Dr. Dana Winters
Director of Simple Interactions and Academic Programs; Assistant Professor of Child and Family Studies
Fred Rogers Center
As the Director of Simple Interactions and Academic Programs for the Fred Rogers Center for Early Learning and Children’s Media at Saint Vincent College in Latrobe, Dr. Winters seeks to apply and advance the legacy of Fred Rogers in serving children and their helpers.
Through projects involving children’s helpers across many diverse settings, including child care, school systems, community programs, residential care and children’s hospitals, she communicates and reflects what is simple and deep about work in service of children and their families.
Dr. Winters supervises the Center’s research lab, Incubator 143, which partners with educators, trainers, advocates and researchers to focus on identifying and amplifying the simple active ingredient that universally helps serve children—the power of human connection.
