The theme of this meeting draws from our upcoming PHENND Annual Conference on “Health,” but will have a specific focus on university partnerships that support health and wellness in our K-12 schools.


From the School District of Philadelphia –

  • Bettyann Creighton, Executive Director, Health, Safety, Nutrition and Physical Education

From the Netter Center for Community Partnerships at the University of Pennsylvania –

  • Paulette Branson, Director of University Assisted Community School Sports
  • Jennifer Chu, Director of Young Quakers Community Athletics Program
  • Paige Lombard, Associate Director of Young Quakers Community Athletics Program

Who should attend?

  • University faculty, staff and students who work with or are interested in working with K-12 schools
  • Non-profits and community programs who are interested in partnerships with colleges, universities and K-12 schools.
  • K-12 teachers, administrators and staff interested in partnerships.

PHENND University Partner Meetings bring together university, nonprofit, and school-based practitioners around common themes. Attendees will have the chance to ask questions to all presenters, network with peers and obtain concrete information on how to connect with the School District. The three main goals for K-16 University Partners meetings are:

  • provide practitioners with “take aways” (e.g. ideas you can adapt for use in your own programs)
  • exposure to new and innovative programs and practices
  • introduction to key School District personnel and strategies
