Our speakers included:

  • Gabrielle Emanuel, Senior Health and Science Reporter at WBUR
  • Nikki Wellander, Senior Public Affairs Coordinator, Media Lead at Jefferson County Public Health
  • Stacey DiLorenzo, Interim Vice President of Communications and Marketing at the George Washington University
