While people are still allowed on campus, discussions will be held on the front lawn of Lurie Biomedical Engineering building. Participants will be asked to enter the area via a “welcome desk” where there will be hand sanitizer, wipes, etc. Participants will be masked, at least 12 feet from one another, and speaking through megaphones with one another. In accordance with public health mandates and guidance, participation will be limited to 20 individuals who sign up to participate ahead of time.
