According to Liu, “We cannot move the dial on health, public health and health outcomes until we address the underlying layer of civic health. The health of the body depends on the health of the body politic.” In his talk, Eric Liu will call on all of us to work collaboratively to help stitch back the social fabric of what citizenship means.

This is the second presentation of four in the series: “Bridging Civic and Public Health during Pandemic Times.”

Bridging Civic and Public Health during Pandemic Times Speaker Series

The University of Wisconsin-Superior’s Link Center has received a $35,000 grant from the Tommy G. Thompson Center on Public Leadership to host a speaker series titled, “Bridging Civic and Public Health during a Pandemic.”

The speaker series, which will virtually take place throughout the 2020-21 academic year, will include four speakers, featuring at least one elected public state official, who will explore the intersections of public health emergencies, citizenship and leadership. The series will cover historical lessons from previous pandemics and opportunities that have emerged from the current public health emergency and a message of hope and practical application. The speakers and topics will strategically build on each other’s content and seek to answer the question, “How can we emerge from a public health emergency civically stronger, together?”
