This November, Changemakers is talking about intention. In Boston, we’ll be speaking with Sophie Godley, Assistant Clinical Professor at Boston University School of Public Health.

Sophie is not a woman who shies away from topics others find difficult to discuss. Her background spans issues ranging from HIV/AIDS to mental health. She is a progressive problem solver who focuses her attention on large and challenging problems while acting as a mentor on a more intimate scale.

Sophie is currently teaching numerous courses including Safer Sex in the City From Science to Policy, and Women, Children and Adolescents Public Health Approaches. Her current work in the community focuses on supporting healthy sexuality in communities and schools, and supporting families and parents of adolescents.

Mark your calendar for November 13th and reserve your spot today. We can’t wait to chat!
