SBS Students Attend Peace4 Communities Gathering

Peace4 Communities Gathering

Brandy Stone (SBS MPH student) and Lindsey King (SBS PhD candidate) attended the first Peace4 Communities Gathering hosted by Peace4Tarpon on Saturday, January 13, 2018 at St. Petersburg College in Tarpon Springs, Florida. Brandy and Lindsey had the opportunity to connect with visionary “Peace4” leaders, such as the founders of Peace4Gainesville and the River Phoenix Center for Peacebuilding, as they shared successes, lessons learned, visions for the future and why they engaged in this unique and powerful work in creating trauma-informed, connected, resilient and peaceful communities. Stone and King, along with Dr. Mark Hart, are currently developing a graduate certificate program in Trauma Informedness and Resilience for Individuals, Communities, and Public Health.
