Fall 2020

Wednesday Forums provide an opportunity for discussion with an external healthcare speaker. Wednesday Forums are Wednesday's 12:30 p.m. - 1:30 p.m. during the Spring and Fall semesters. Wednesday Forum participation is required of all residential MHA students.

Due to the ongoing pandemic, the majority of the Wednesday Forums will be conducted via Zoom. In order to receive credit for attending the session, students are expected to join each session with "video on".
