FEATURED EVENT Bouncing Back After Being Knocked Down - Virtual Workshop

Are there strategies we can learn in order to ‘bounce back’ after we’ve been disappointed, let down, or hurt? Turns out there is and it comes from a rather unlikely source: studies of natural ecosystems like rivers and forests, and human-made ecosystems like cities. In this course we’ll learn some of these ‘ecosystem lessons’ and discover ways we can apply these insights directly to our day-to-day lives as physicians and scientists.

June 12th and 19th (Fridays), noon to 1:30 p.m.
