Panel Discussion: Commit to Connect- Connecting with others plays a vital role in our individual health and well-being, and in that of our community. Connection can involve many things like finding joy in small things, keeping physically strong and healthy, sharing our stories, looking at the big picture and giving to others. Join us in a panel discussion around what resources are available that can help our community get connected, be strong and combat the social isolation of the last year of our lives.
