Location: Zoom linkĀ 

About the discussion

The COVID-19 pandemic has both highlighted and exacerbated the structural inequalities and inadequacies in systems of healthcare that are part of living a 21st century life in the United States. At the same time, the pandemic has required urgent responses from local community networks of care and it has highlighted the fundamental generosity and resilience of clinicians, scientists and community workers who are confronting the disease. In addition to the grief, suffering and trauma that will need to be addressed and accommodated in the post-pandemic future, we can anticipate greater burdens and complexities to the experiences of loneliness and social isolation as communities regain their bearings and create pathways to new normal lives.
