Supporting LGBTQ Youth And Their Families; Users Losing Trust In Social Media?

Will 2018 go into the books as a pivotal year for social media and the way users view those platforms? After a series of breaches, and questions about the way data is collected and used, it's been, to say the least, a tumultuous year for the tech giants. We'll discuss the year that was in social media and what it may mean for 2019 and beyond.   Then in our monthly Be Well Health segment, we'll focus on the potential trauma faced by LGBTQ teens including marginalization and isolation.  Be Well Health Reporter, Marlene Harris-Taylor discusses resources to help teens and their families.  Finally, we'll discuss a strategic plan from the Fund for Our Economic Future that says economic vitality hinges on connecting people, to good jobs.
