The Renaissance of Connection - Examining the Science and Power of Community

Following the significant interruption in our usual ways of connecting with others, we are presented with a unique opportunity to examine the state of our personal and professional communities. Current events including the pandemic, wildfires, floods, and personal losses have revealed fault lines throughout our complex networks. This keynote will explore some of the challenges we face as nurses and in our society at large, the neuroscience behind the power of positive relationships, and the effects of the digital era on building community. The importance of initiating new, renewing lost, and nurturing existing relationships will be explored. The audience will be presented with practical strategies for making stronger connections that provide strength and value to your communities.
