About this event

Dear Friends,

As we ring in the New Year, we would also like to take this time to reflect on the past and explore new, more inclusive ways forward in the year ahead. In this spirit, our Health Care Program has organized an informational webinar series that discusses a different, timely topic each month.

This series will feature different perspectives and contributors, and will cover numerous hot topics in health care, such as, how vaccination and COVID-19 has affected different religious communities, to gaining a better understanding of how different identities navigate and are treated in health care settings. We hope you will be able to join us or this important conversation. Please review the schedule below for the topics, dates, and times each month.

We look forward to seeing you!

Warm regards,

The Health Care Team
