Family support conference set

Family values is becoming a buzzword across the country as the 1996 presidential election heats up. But there's a unit at Pitt that goes beyond the political rhetoric. Pitt's Office of Child Development, which helps to run six Allegheny County Family Support Centers, is co-sponsoring a family support conference next week, helping families deal with everyday problems like juggling a full time job while caring for an elderly parent.

The May 30 conference at the Sheraton in Station Square is designed to promote awareness of the county's Family Support Centers, which assist families with stressful situations, including employment problems and landlord disputes. In addition to lectures by experts, a "Speak-Out Session" will feature families who have successfully worked with the centers. There will also be more than two dozen workshops. Registration is $35. For more information, call Patty Simko at 647-9541.
