Dr. Liggett-Creel coordinates and hosts Healing Youth Alliance Conference

The Baltimore City Healing Youth Alliance Conference took place on November 19, 2020 and welcomed over 650 participants. The conference became national with participants attending from California to New Jersey to Florida. There were even participants from Canada who logged on to learn from the Youth of Baltimore. Youth from Baltimore City spoke on three topics related to mental health, healing, and the African American community. Participants completed satisfaction surveys and 100% reported that they would attend another conference by the Healing Youth Alliance and would recommend the speakers to others. For those who were unable to attend, recordings can be access through the links below. If anyone has any questions or is interested in having the Healing Youth Alliance speak to classes or organizations please contact Dr. Liggett-Creel at kliggett-creel@ssw.umaryland.edu.
