Multiple Intelligences Talks to Pediatricians in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam

Thomas in VietnamI have been in Vietnam for the past two days presenting information about the theory of multiple intelligences to pediatricians and other health care professionals.  Yesterday (November 22), I was in Hanoi and spoke to about 220 HCPs at the Hilton Hanoi Opera Hotel about the ‘’Eight Kinds of Smart.’’  Today, I was in Ho Chi Minh City at the Gem Center and presented the same information to around 350 HCPs.  Each conference also included a presentation by Dr. Thai Thanh Thuy, who spoke about the importance of multiple intelligences in the learning and development of Vietnamese children. During my talks, I mentioned that I would make the handouts from my presentations available to those who attended the conferences.  If you would like to download the handouts (Vietnamese version), click here. 

I want to thank the Vietnam Pediatric Association and Wyeth Nutrition for co-sponsoring the two events.  I feel very honored to have been able to travel to Vietnam (my first visit), and to have learned something about the rich cultural history and traditions of the Vietnamese people.  I will carry my fond memories of this trip home with me, and will look forward to coming back to Vietnam in the near future!
