We have reserved Whitehead 600 (the conference room) for the virtual events listed below so that we can tune in together as a community. Please feel free to stop by, even if you can’t stay for the whole time or will arrive late.

- Neuroracism Panel (Wednesday, 1-2 PM ET): Learn how racism translates into misdiagnoses or lack of diagnosis in neurology and psychiatry.
