The completion of the symposium will result in publication of a book, edited by Dr. Mark Wilcox, CGSC associate professor, with chapters written by the panel experts.

The third and final virtual presentation in the series entitled “Part 3: Rebuilding the Alliance” is scheduled for Feb. 8, 2022. – Registration is free. The event registration will be available in the “events” section of the Foundation website soon.
