In this third special COVID-19 episode of The Brain Architects podcast, host Sally Pfitzer is joined by Dr. David Williams, the Florence Sprague Norman and Laura Smart Norman Professor of Public Health, Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health.

He also pinpoints the importance of creating “communities of opportunity” that will allow all families to thrive—both during and after this pandemic.
