Dear all,

Unfortunately we will not be able to stream the event this time around. We will follow up in the near future on other opportunities to partake in similar events online, as it is important to us to find ways for the wider community to be a part of such discussions.

For those who do happen to be in NYC next week, just sending a reminder to please RSVP for the event, as it is filling up! Please find the invitation attached here with an updated speakers list, including Marjorie Paloma, Director of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.

Best wishes,
Jordan

Hi Jordan,

Thank you for the invite. Will you have pod casts accessible to those who are not in New York?
