The COVID Crisis: The Lessons We Are Learning
Includes a Live Event on 11/10/2020 at 1:00 PM (EST)
During this unprecedented time, we have learned much, and we will continue to learn as we face this pandemic.
During this workshop, three Communities will share their experiences and the changes they have made in order to address the many challenges caused by this virus. They will share their stories of understanding the need for transformation, implementing practical procedures and processes, and learning positive lessons from their experiences.
This webinar is designed for individual members of Congregations as well as leadership and healthcare providers.
