COVID19 Edition: What lies ahead?

Tuesday, June 2, 2020
1:00 PM – 2:30 PM

Are you wondering what response and recovery looks like for a pandemic? How complex are the problems that lie ahead, and why does that matter?

Join us over Zoom as we discuss what response and recovery of our collective health and wellness looks like for COVID-19. We hope to deepen our collective understanding of the complexity of this challenge and consider what that means for collective action.
