Human Flourishing 2030: Flourishing in the Community

Location: Virtual

Date: Monday, January 24, 2022

Time: 4–5 p.m.


About the Event

The Kern National Network for Caring & Character in Medicine, of which Dell Med is a partner school, is pleased to present its discussion series, “Human Flourishing 2030.”

Imagine it’s 2030 and we live in a healthier world where health care learners, practitioners and patients are flourishing. What does that future look like, and what will it take to get there? We need your voice and participation to chart the way.

In this series, four sessions will examine influences — micro to macro — that are shaping and driving the vitality of health care learners, professionals and broader society over the next decade.

For more information about the event, email Sarah Williams.
