Scholar in Residence with Dr. Betsy Stone

The last 30 months have been a time of upheaval and disruption. We have lost friends, freedom, and our sense of normalcy. Whether COVID, politics, personal losses, or newfound values, we are all changed. How do we move forward into the next normal? Join Dr. Betsy Stone for a weekend of exploration of what we’ve lost, what we’ve gained, and who we are.
