Event description

Description

On April 10th, join Shareable and the Holistic Health Institute at San Francisco State University, to explore the question, “How can we respond as a community to reduce social isolation?” We’ll go beyond the typical approaches to look at how civic engagement, the solidarity economy, public space, housing, sharing projects, and other social innovations can help reweave the social fabric.

This will be a participatory event with food, games, two rounds of breakout conversations/action planning, and an engaging panel discussion.

Host:

Neal Gorenflo, Executive Director of Shareable

Moderator:

Kenn Burrows, Holistic Health Studies, SFSU

Panelists:

Terry Collins, freelance journalist and Region IV Director, National Association of Black Journalists


Carla Perissinotto, MD, Associate Professor, Geriatrics Division, Department of Medicine, University of California San Francisco

Vivian Chavez, Dr.P.H., M.P.H., Associate Professor, Department of Health Education, San Francisco State University.

(more panelists and conversation catalysts to be announced)
