Closing Session


Honesty is the root of comedy.

Iliza Shlesinger Comedian, Actor, and Author of All Things Aside


Featuring three one-on-one conversations, our tenth anniversary closing session is not to be missed! We begin with comedian Iliza Shlesinger, who opens up to bestselling author Kate Bowler about using humor to confront trauma and other health challenges. Then the spotlight moves to Mia McLeoad, an independent, and Penry Gustafson, a Republican, two of the South Carolina Sister Senators who stood together to slow passage of state legislation imposing a near-total ban on abortion. And we wrap up with Anthony Fauci talking to STAT’s Nicholas St. Fleur about the triumphs and perils of leading NIAID for 40 years.
