McKenzie Health System Presents Healthy Living Together Event: Digital Safety for Parents

Matt Gezequel

In today's world, the internet is a big part of our lives. We use it for fun, learning, and staying connected with friends. But it is important for parents to know how to keep their kids safe online. That's why Digital Safety is the topic of the next Healthy Living Together virtual event, which is scheduled for May 15, 2024, from 12:00 to 1:00 p.m.

Nina Barnett, Public Relations and Foundation Coordinator at McKenzie Health System and Healthy Living Together Committee Chair, says, "As parents, we want to make sure our kids are safe online. This event will give us the tools we need to do that."

“We're excited to have Matt Gezequel from the Sandusky Police Department joining us,” continues Barnett. “He's an expert on digital safety and knows a lot about keeping kids safe online. He will share tips and answer questions to help parents protect their families in the digital world.” Additional details and registration information is available at or by calling 810-648-6117. Parents, guardians, and anyone who cares about kids' safety online are welcome to attend. Learn, ask questions, and connect with others who want to keep kids safe online!
