CIHF: Healthy Futures - Transforming Our Lives Through COVID-19’s Lessons

June 24 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm EDT

Event overview

The COVID-19 pandemic disrupted every aspect of our lives: how we work, socialize, provide healthcare, take care of society’s most vulnerable and disenfranchised — even our rituals of death and mourning. But do we really want to “go back to normal?” Or is it time to create a healthier, more equitable future?

Join the thought leaders from the Cornell Institute for Healthy Futures (CIHF) to explore how life will change in response to the pandemic along with suggestions for transforming the challenging experiences of the past year into positive lessons. This session will highlight key takeaways from a new collaborative CIHF white paper focusing on COVID-19’s lasting impacts on healthy work, healthcare and hospitality environments; food access; and the senior living experience.
