Reminder: You are welcome to attend the Tiny Earth Winter Symposium
In addition to celebrating the research efforts of students around the world including our own UW-Green Bay students, this year’s Tiny Earth Winter Symposium, Dec. 14-15 via ZOOM is focused on public health emergencies and the inequities associated with them. A panel of experts will convene on the second day of the symposium (December 15) to discuss public health emergencies and solutions to address them. The inequities of public health, as well as scientific literacy, will be featured topics. Symposium participants will then have an opportunity to engage in a discussion around actions we can take in our communities to spread awareness of the challenges and solutions to address them. This is timely for many reasons, including the inclusivity efforts taking place on our own campus, as well as the management of the safety issues related to COVID-19 on our campus and in our community. Chancellor Alexander was chosen by the steering committee to provide the welcome on December 15 in recognition of his contributions in these areas. The Symposium is a great opportunity to showcase the value of partnerships to mitigating large problems to a wide audience. Tiny Earth represents the realm of what is possible when innovative partnerships emerge for the greater good. The symposium wholly reflects the value of collaboration for this purpose. You are invited to join. Registration is free for students and the community.
