Generation Z Expert to Speak at CF, Feb. 10
February 10 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
CF will host Dr. Jean Twenge, a researcher on Generation Z or iGen, Monday, Feb. 10, at 7:30 p.m., in the Ewers Century Center. The event is free and open to the public.
Participants will learn why today’s young people are growing up more slowly, spend more time online and less time with friends face-to-face, and are more likely to experience unhappiness, anxiety, depression and sleep deprivation. Twenge will talk about ways to find a balance with technology, leaving time for activities that are more beneficial for physical and mental health.
Twenge is a professor at San Diego State University and is the author of more than a hundred scientific publications and three books based on her research. Her research has appeared in Time, USA Today, The New York Times and The Washington Post, and she has been featured on Today, Good Morning America and CBS This Morning. She holds degrees from the University of Chicago and University of Michigan.
