Penn Futures Project appoints faculty leaders to serve children and families in Philadelphia

The Penn Futures Project, a collaborative effort among three Penn schools to serve the Philadelphia community, has appointed two new faculty leaders: Nutrition and Nursing professor Terri Lipman, and Child Development and Education professor Vivian Gadsden.

Launched in 2015, the Penn Futures Project promotes an interdisciplinary approach to serving children and families in Philadelphia. Together, members of the School of Nursing, School of Social Policy and Practice, and Graduate School of Education aim to help local community members while simultaneously providing community-based training for graduate students in the field.
