Tuesday, March 31st, from 6:00pm EDT – 7:00pm EDT
Sponsored by South Asian Americans in Public Service



We understand that for many students, COVID-19 has been a source of stress, confusion, and has raised numerous questions, among them: What does this mean? How long could this last? How do I remain hopeful? How can I meaningfully contribute during this time?  

The South Asian Americans in Public Service initiative (SAAPS), a Harvard College student organization, is hosting a webinar event specifically for college students with Former U.S. Surgeon General, Vivek Murthy ('97), and Former Executive Director of Doctors for America, Alice Chen.  

Through an interactive conversation with students from across the nation, Dr. Murthy and Dr. Chen will answer pressing questions, reminding us why we need to remain hopeful, positive, and vigilant. They will also help us understand how we can take a deeply troubling situation and create meaningful, impactful change within our communities. 

This event will take place on Tuesday, March 31st, from 6:00pm EDT – 7:00pm EDT. Harvard students and affiliates of all identities are welcome. Please register in order to attend/receive the webinar information: https://harvard.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZcud-Cppj0qd5VG9uBiSyh6q5AVtjm6Pw
