Upcoming Events: May 2021
Over the past year, we've seen a lot of upheaval and uncertainity, fear and frustration. But we've also seen a lot of good small acts of kindness, solidarity, and resilient hope. Any Perios of change provides oppurtunities as much as challenges, and we want to use this time to reflect, rest, and reaffirm our commitment to working on shared values with the UK.
But what are those values? US Embassy London is continuing our speaker series, "Who is Our Neighbour?" in collaboration with the London Central Mosque and Tuff Earth, in an attempt to answer that question and discuss how we work toward building the kind of societies we want to be, together. The past 14 months, the world has been united in the ongoing fight against COVID-19. With both the US and UK rolling out vaccination schedules, some of the challenges are behind us, while others remain.
We're using this time to reflect on how the pandemic has exposed healthcare disparities, shone a light on mental health, and engendered community spirit with this next session: Public Health & Compassion. We
be speaking with Weyu Hodge of Centerin Healthcare Institute and Dr. Shamender Talwar, co-founder of TUFF.Earth. Join us for the discussion on May 5 at 3:30pm BST
