This month’s speakers include:
COMBATTING COVID IN SLO COUNTY
Dr. Aydin Nazmi, chair of the medical panel behind SLO County’s reopening guidelines, will provide a look back and ahead. He’ll address the panel’s considerations in determining our approach and outline the latest thinking on what lies ahead in the battle to combat and contain the spread of the coronavirus.
FROM THE FRONTLINES IN NEW YORK CITY
Instead of riding out the pandemic in our relatively quiet neck of the woods, Jessi Norris dove right into the epicenter. She is one of several French Hospital ICU nurses who traveled to New York City to pitch in at hospitals overrun with Covid-19 patients. We asked her to share what the experience was like and the perspective she gained.
TESTING, TESTING, TESTING
Testing lies at the core of an effective coronavirus response. Another member of the medical panel in both SLO and Santa Barbara counties, Dr. Kevin Ferguson, will lay out how the region’s testing strategy is taking shape. He’ll also break down the crucial differences between diagnostic and antibody testing plus the value and limitations of each.
NOVEL CHALLENGES FROM A NOVEL SITUATION
The pandemic has brought a host of new interpersonal tensions, from that friend or co-worker who has a whole different take on social distancing to encounters with strangers over masks or distance. Creative Mediation’s Samantha Watkins will offer some tools and guidance on navigating the new social challenges of the coronavirus era.
STAYING MENTALLY TOUGH IN THE NEW NORMAL
It’s been a long couple months, and all of us are feeling the strain. Gymnazo co-owner and pep-talk pro Paden Hughes will speak to the critical importance of adopting and maintaining a healthy mindset, including top tips on staying strong both physically and mentally in this uniquely challenging time.
