We’re about 18 months into the COVID-19 pandemic. Many of us assumed by now that we’d see the coronavirus and its impact in our personal and professional lives in the rearview mirror. Instead, more people need to get vaccinated, the economy could be better and the discussion about WFH and/or going back to the office continues. Minnesota PRSA’s Virtual Webinar on Wednesday, November 17th will feature local experts including Anna Lynn of the Children and Family Division of the Minnesota Department of Health; Leonard Lee, Principal of Perfectense and former MPR reporter; and Jennifer Hellman, COO and Principal (and incoming CEO) at Goff Public. They will provide the information you need to be healthier and more resilient, improve your performance at work and your overall quality of life. The webinar begins at 9 am and ends at 10:30 am, including plenty of time for Q&A. We hope to see you then!
