In addition to interviewing school heroes on the frontlines who are feeding our families to understand how we can serve, to understand the pandemic we review our Public Health non-profit’s Founder and Board Chair Dr. Jordan Shlain’s dispatch newsletter (this is my one-stop-shop for vetted information).
