It was a fun day where staff members, friends, and family got together to cheer on the guys in blue. Even though Dodgers didn’t beat the Cubs, the 4th annual Dodger company social was a winning event for Behavior Frontiers. Thanks to all of those who attended and those who planned the event. Go Dodgers!
