A “Join the Conversation” Event

We’ve lived with COVID-19 for about 18 months, and witnessed first-hand its impact on the daily lives and education of our kids. Now the Delta variant is presenting new challenges and questions. What have we learned already that will help us move forward? What else do we need to know? Join us for a discussion.

We're asking you to submit your questions in advance. You can click here or fill out the form below.

While misinformation abounds on this subject, we’ll seek to have a thoughtful, informed discussion with respected experts in the fields of public health, education and journalism.

Daisy Contreras: Reporter and Editor of WGBH’s The World. Ms. Contreras has covered education, politics, business, the economy, and how these issues intersect with immigrant life. A fluent Spanish speaker, Ms. Contreras is an active member of the National Association of Hispanic Journalists and the Society of Professional Journalists.

Dr. Sharon Nachman, M.D.: Chief of Pediatric Infectious Diseases at Stony Brook Children’s Hospital. An international leader in the area of pediatric infectious disease and the treatment of children with AIDS, flu and measles, Dr. Nachman also directs the Maternal Child HIV/AIDS Program.
