About the Living Classrooms Foundation:
Living Classrooms Foundation is a Baltimore-Washington, D.C.-based nonprofit organization that strengthens communities and inspires young people to achieve their potential through hands-on education and job training; using urban, natural and maritime resources as "living classrooms." The Foundation's Carmelo Anthony Youth Development Center responds to the community's need for intervention that supports the academic and social development of disadvantaged youth. The children and youth served reside primarily in public housing and low-income neighborhoods and their communities lack many of the services found in more affluent areas. The Youth Development Center provides services in five core areas: Education and Career Development, Character and Development, Health and Life Skills, The Arts and Cultural Enrichment, and Sports and Reacreation.
Professor Jeffrey Good will discuss his research on how patients and health care providers interact, and how it can be applied to improve patient-provider communication.
