Focus topics
  • October 15: The Pandemic's Impact on Mental Health [Watch Recording]
    Covid-19 has had a disproportionate impact on communities of color, leaving scars on short and long-term mental health and wellbeing. In this conversation, we will discuss the implications of the pandemic on mental health, as well as strategies and solutions for the path ahead.
  • November 5: Ensuring Equity in Virtual Healthcare
    Covid-19 has served as a springboard for the rapid advancement of virtual health. This conversation will focus on the challenge and promise of virtual health in the care of diverse populations.
  • November 19: The Promise of a New Vaccine
    The supposed "silver-bullet" to end the Covid-19 crisis is a vaccine, but will it alone be enough to return to life as we previously knew it? We'll talk about this core question, the issue of mistrust, and access to care in the effort to protect Americans through vaccination.
