Webinar Series - Beyond COVID: Connecting Communities, Health, and Care


COVID-19 has forced us to face the hard truths about health care and communities: the system is not working. People are left out. 

In the throes of the crisis, we have the opportunity to reimagine what communities, health, and care can look like. Beyond COVID: Connecting Communities, Health, and Care, the series, will explore the topics of community health centers, public health, mental health, and hospitals. We'll learn how COVID broke down the silos these systems work in, what new relationships or partnerships formed as a result, and what sort of structural reforms are next. 


Moderated by Frances G. Padilla, President of Universal Health Care

Frances will be in conversation with two guests per session, to be announced as sessions approach, who are leaders in the areas of community health centers, public health, hospitals, and mental.  Guests will share not only some of the lessons learned from COVID, but also how those lessons can be applied as we move through and past this crisis.



Upcoming Session:


September 29, 2021 from 1pm to 2pm

Hospitals have faced huge challenges during the COVID-19 pandemic, from overflowing ERs and ICUs to lack of protective equipment to standing up testing and vaccine sites.  

Join Reginald Eadie, President and CEO of Trinity Health of New England, and Kathleen Silard, President and CEO of Stamford Health, in conversation with Frances Padilla, President of Universal Health Care Foundation of Connecticut, as they discuss how they managed to meet the needs of their patients, their employees and their communities in the midst of the crisis and how can we hold onto lessons learned.
