Riley Pediatrician Dr. Michael Goodman to speak at Veale Elementary


Dr. Michael Goodman is a pediatric physician who suffers from the same disfiguring disease as Auggie, the main character in the children's book Wonder by  R.J. Palacio and the movie starring Jacob Tremblay, Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson.   


Dr. Goodman is speaking to local schools because he knows what it's like to be bullied and picked on, and he wants to spread his message of kindness. Dr. Goodman will talk to students about how to accept and love people who don't sound and look like them. 


Dr. Goodman will be giving his Auggie Talks program at Veale Elementary on Monday, September 17th.
