The New Normal: Emotions as We Emerge from the Pandemic

After a year of so much hardship and isolation, how do we readjust to a “new normal”? Join Dr. Jessi Gold and Dr. Lucy Kalanithi, host of the new podcast "Gravity," for a deep dive into the varied emotions many of us are currently feeling as the country reopens post-pandemic.

From Zoom fatigue to unprocessed mental health challenges—including grief and trauma—there are countless underlying effects of COVID-19 still left unspoken.

This program will be an open and safe space to bring those conversations, questions, and fears to the surface.


This is a free, online-only program; please pre-register to receive a link to the live-stream event.

We welcome donations made during registration to help support the production of our online programming.
