Each FSM Community Collaborative will include a moderated panel conversation and collaborative problem solving session focused on one of each of the seven life domains identified by Casey Family Programs (2006) as a way to organize and address the needs of students with experience in foster care.  This moderated conversation will allow students to speak as experts in their own lived experience, educating the professionals and supportive adults in attendance.  These events will also incorporate live streaming via Periscope from 2:00-3:00 PM EDT, allowing FSM Network participants to attend in person or virtually.  Stay tuned to FSM for more information about each month's themed life domain which will include a webinar and podcast.  All events will be from 1:00PM to 4:00PM and include networking time and refreshments.
