The SAFE Project: Innovations in Community Programming and Prevention for Youth in Cleveland || Community Health Research & Practice Seminar

Event Date:
February 27th 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Lisa Ramirez


Dr. Lisa Ramirez, Associate Director of Pediatric Psychology at the MetroHealth System in Cleveland, Ohio, and Associate Professor of Psychiatry at MetroHealth and the Case Western School of Medicine, will join the Community Health Research and Practice (CHRP) seminar to discuss this critical topic. 

In this session, Dr. Ramirez will inform us about how youth in Cleveland face a variety of social drivers negatively impacting their health, education, and overall community. Fortunately, youth in Cleveland also live among a vibrant network of organizations and a health system focused on addressing toxic stress and facilitating resilience through protective factors. She will explore how an innovative prevention program aimed at promoting engagement in the arts and seeking meaningful connections in their environments can protect youth from the impacts of stress, trauma, and discrimination.

Brittany Pope


Dr. Ramirez will be joined by our discussant, Brittany Randall-Pope, M.S., Assistant Vice President, Applied Clinical Sciences and Research at OhioGuidestone, a nonprofit leader in behavioral health that focuses on the needs of the whole person and their empowerment.
