Can people become addicted to texting or tweeting or social media sites?

A Yale University psychiatrist and addiction specialist will explore those questions during a program Wednesday, March 28, at Fairfield University's Alumni House.

The program is at 7 p.m. It is free and open to the public, but the university asked that those planning to attend register.

Dr. Marc N. Potenza, professor of addiction psychiatry and neurobiology at Yale's School of Medicine, will be the featured speaker at "Understanding Addiction in the Digital Age."

The discussion is sponsored by Fairfield's Graduate School of Education and Allied Professions.

Potenza's presentation will include a panel discussion with Fairfield faculty members, followed by a Q&A with the audience.

To register, call 203 254-4280.
