In Case You Missed It - "We Are More Than Just One Thing”, A Conversation With Dr. Junlei Li And Dr. Dana Winters

In this session, Dr. Junlei Li and Dr. Dana Winters discussed Fred Rogers ideas around finding opportunities to "bring courage" (in Fred's words) to those around us.  What we do for the human beings around us - young or old - is often so much more than just our job descriptions and titles.  Even when conditions around us feel limiting, we can all find our resilient and creative ways to be helpful.  In case you missed it, please watch here:
