Conversations That Move:

Does the solution to mounting chronic stress lie in simply creating more connections? Find out at Creative Tensions: Creating Connection in a Divided World in the Hines Room in the Kresge Building at 10:20 am. Creative Tensions is not a panel; it’s a conversation that moves. Moderated by IDEO’s Fred Dust, it’s a fresh approach to group dialogue that encourages openness and inspires empathy.

Late Breaker:

New session alert! Visit the Koch Tent at 5:30 pm to listen to 19th US Surgeon General Vivek Murthy on the Gun Violence Epidemic. Together, Judy Woodruff and Murthy will take on a national health crisis with a public health physician's thoughtful perspective.

Pause and Reflect:

Visit the Marble Garden to view the AIDS Memorial Quilt, a powerful visual reminder of the AIDS pandemic created by The Names Project Foundation to create a memorial for those who have died of AIDS, and thereby help people understand the devastating impact of the disease
