In the Cloud and On the Ground: Bridging the Lives and Health Needs of Youth

On Thursday, April 21, Dr. Jose Bauermeister, Albert M. Greenfield Professor of Human Relations, and Chair of the Department of Family and Community Health at Penn Nursing, presented, “In the Cloud and On the Ground: Bridging the Lives and Health Needs of Youth,” for the 2022 Albert M. Greenfield Memorial Lecture.

The lecture—given annually to honor the memory of the late Albert M. Greenfield (1887-1967), a longtime city leader who chaired the Philadelphia City Planning Commission and many other civic and philanthropic organizations—highlighted the importance of recognizing youths’ virtual and “in real life” selves, the value of bridging these two realities, and the importance of creating programs that respond to the needs of youths, using exemplars from several innovative life-skills programs geared to LGBTQ+ youth.
