Join us for Dinner & Dialogue about Teens and Sleep in Homewood

for New Pittsburgh Courier

Who: The Urban League of Greater Pittsburgh, New Pittsburgh Courier, UPMC Center for Engagement & Inclusion, University of Pittsburgh’s Clinical and Translational Science Institute (CTSI), and YOU. Teens are encouraged to come!

What: We invite you to join in a conversation getting at the root causes of issues related to sleep and teens. We hope to think about how the blue-light emitting from smart phones, mental health contributors, stress from working, family and environmental factors and more all affect young folks. The floor will be open to robust dialogue. The free and open to the public Dinner and Dialogue series will discuss Allegheny County-specific health disparities and current research and resource opportunities. Researchers and community leaders will be on hand to present findings and explore solutions. Dinner and child care will be provided. There will be panelists and opportunities to engage in deeper conversation around youths and sleep and the disproportionate ways that sleep effects communities of color. The event will highlight opportunities for all voices to be heard in the space.

Where: Community Engagement Center in Homewood at 622 North Homewood Avenue, Pittsburgh, PA 15208

When: September 24, 2019, from 5:30-7:00 p.m.

Why: This unique event seeks to boost community health education and advocacy, increase diverse participation in clinical and translational research and encourage individuals to become empowered and actively engaged in their own health and well-being.

RSVP to with your name, number in your party, if you have any food allergies. Please let us know if you will require child care.
