A Michigan Radio Live In-Person and Virtual Event

When coronavirus vaccines became widely available this spring we hoped that life would be back to normal soon. But the Delta variant, vaccination resistance and evolving science have taken us to this fraught stage of the pandemic.

Stateside's April Baer hosted this conversation about the new normal: learning to live with COVID. We’ll discuss the latest science, and the impact the ongoing pandemic is having on jobs, education, and our personal stress levels.

April Baer’s panel included:

Abram Wagner, PhD, Research Assistant Professor, Department of Epidemiology, University of Michigan
Preeti Malani, MD: Chief Health Officer, University of Michigan
Crystal Fluker: Arrowwood Hills Community Center, Washtenaw County Community Action Network
