I assume that plans are fluid and they may need to change depending on what happens in the fall correct?
Allison Tokar

Will students be required to wear MGH IHP provided masks or will personal masks be allowed when on campus?
Allison Tokar
27:05
Also is the institute giving departments guidelines on what on camps work GAs may be asked to do in the fall or will that be left up to the departments?
Swarna Gummadi

Are we allowed to plan student events or study groups at the campus in the fall?
Riya Dhamankar
30:47
Is there a reason that an official school email hasn’t been sent out yet stating that didactic courses are fully online in the fall? Many people I have talked to who did not attend the past town hall were not aware of this

Suggestions of these kind have been made before from BIPOC. What is different about this time?

BIPOC = Black, Indigenous, People of Color

Accounting the difference in resolve on external factors (nationwide protests) suggests that complacency was okay until it was on trend to make changes. While the events of the last 2 weeks are alarming, they have been here for years.

Thank you, Brianna.

Thank you for sharing, Brianna. I agree that anti-Black racism has been happening for centuries. I came to the IHP in July 2019, but my focus has been racial justice since I've started. What I have been seeing the past several weeks is that the doors are now wide open for conversations across the IHP.
Brianna Williams

Thank you.

Open labs will need to be scheduled. Correct? rooms won't be open for students to practice when they have free time correct/

Just affirming today's Supreme Court decision guaranteeing that gay and transgender people cannot be fired by their employers. This is a landmark decision during Pride month!

Great news!
David Despotakis

Across programs, students experience racism and ableism in external placements. How will you challenge clinical partners?
David Despotakis
01:01:37
Is the IHP willing to challenge powerful institutions like Mass General and Boston’s Childrens?
David Despotakis
01:02:42
The reality is that students are placed in these sites, after these issues are already discovered
Brianna Williams
01:03:00
Is the IHP willing to discontinue placements where reports of these instances have already been made? Students continue to be placed there
David Despotakis
01:04:32
Will you work with other schools on this issue?
Brianna Williams
01:04:32
By placing white counterparts there instead until the “issues” are resolved?
Maureen Flynn
01:11:24
I think students want confirmation that they have faculty and administrative support, and we will not let reports of racism towards our students go without intervention,
Maureen Flynn

Thanks, Paula!
