  • So appreciate these brief and incredibly informative and approachable clips, Dr. Slater and Yoni! The specific attention paid to the emotional vulnerability impacts of the pandemic was such a unique and important call-out, as was drawing necessary awareness to charitable food sector staff and unpaid staff as essential workers, whose efforts have gone almost totally unrecognized by the public. Looking forward to the speaker series.
