Intergenerational Dialogues & Events

(all events are coordinated by Points Of View’s Principal Partner, Dr. James Gambone)

Current Projects

Dr. Gambone continues his intergenerational dialogue work in a variety of ways…
He is teaching and mentoring two different generations of future public health leaders around the world through Capella University. There, he promotes the Dialogue Process as a public health outreach tool and, through his undergraduate and doctoral level courses, teaches the importance of approaching all public health issues through a generational and intergenerational lens.

Dr. Gambone is also participating in a variety of national intergenerational conversations started by Gen2Gen. As part of that effort, he is looking to organize an intergenerational “Poetry Slam” at Gen2Gen’s national meeting in 2021.
