Join LinkedIn’s Chief Marketing & Communications Officer and Executive Co-Sponsor of EnableIn, Mel Selcher, as she hosts our first-ever LinkedIn Live virtual Speaker Series with Dr. Vivek Murthy, the 19th Surgeon General of the United States and author of Together: The Healing Power of Human Connection in a Sometimes Lonely World. Mel and Dr. Murthy will discuss the importance of human connection, the hidden impact of loneliness on our health, and the social power of community. This discussion couldn’t come at a better time—as COVID-19 continues to evolve, the public health imperative is clear: to save lives, we need to radically increase the physical space between us. But will these practices condemn us to loneliness and lead to a “social recession”? Dr. Murthy strongly believes healthy relationships are as essential to our overall health as vaccines and ventilators, and that we have a great opportunity to strengthen our connections and communities during this time. He’ll share four key strategies to help us not only weather this storm, but heal our social world far into the future. This is a Speaker Series you won’t want to miss!
