From A to Gen Z: The Path to Actual Behavior Change

Event date: 12/13/2019 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM Export event

PACHC will host the From A to Gen Z: The Path to Actual Behavior Change webinar on Dec. 13 from 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm.

Generation Z includes anyone born after 1997 and is the youngest, most ethnically-diverse and largest generation in American history. They grew up with technology at their fingertips, often expecting instant gratification. It can be challenging to hold their attention to elicit behavior change if you are not appealing to their personal motivations. As health care professionals, we must adapt our communication and education techniques to connect with this younger generation. In this webinar, we will explore the unique motivations and learning preferences for adolescents emerging from Generation Z. We will also explore ways that you can use motivational interviewing in your own clinic to work smarter, not harder.
