You & the Blue

A Newsletter for Alumni and Friends of Broward College

MARCH 2021


UPCOMING VIRTUAL EVENT

The Broward College Alumni & Friends Network has partnered with the Faculty Speaker Series to bring you two riviting presenters.

Join us on Friday, April 16 from 12 - 1:30 p.m. for “How Philosophy Can Help Us to Transition in Difficult Times” with Professor Nora Ayala and “The Ugly Truth underlying Medical Mistrust” with Professor Edward Cornejo.

 

Faculty Speaker Series

The topics are particularly relevant today as we transition into a post-pandemic society.

Register for the Faculty Speaker Series today!

Our March webinar, Let’s Make HERStory with Monique “Mo” Corker was an evening not to be missed! But if you did, you can still watch it and all of our previous presentations when you visit our online archives.

VILLAGE SQUARE

Join this nervy group of liberals and conservatives who believe that dialogue and disagreement make for a good time and a good country. This virtual event is free and open to the public.

On Wednesday, April 14 at 7 p.m., join Balancing Public Health with Economic Health: How to Get It Right. It’s been a delicate and difficult line to walk in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic, with two very different viewpoints. Do you close businesses and schools to keep people at home and healthy? Or does a healthy economy sustain human life?

The questions are many, the answers are difficult. Is the health and safety of individuals more important than the health of our businesses and economy?

Register for this virtual event online. While registering you will have the opportunity to submit a question for the panel prior to the event.
