To promote exciting visions for New York State post-COVID-19, the conversation will discuss how New York has experienced past health crises, including health justice and community experiences, and resulting innovations. What can we learn from past medical challenges and health crises? What are we learning from COVID-19 and what does that mean for building back better?
