Landscapes of agony

Dear colleagues, 

The death of George Floyd at the hands of Minneapolis police and the protests that ensued all over the country unveiled the hard work ahead of us. Creating healthy and connected communities in which everyone can thrive is tied to all of us coming together to form holistic and concerted efforts that eliminate health, income, and educational disparities.

Look forward to hearing your thoughts and ideas.
