The Scholars’ Hub events are done in partnership with Vaughan Public Libraries, Markham Public Library, and Aurora Public Library. The Scholars' Hub @ Home series is brought to you by York Alumni Engagement. We invite students, alumni and all members of the community to join us. All sessions take place at 12pm ET.

Dr. Dasantila Golemi-Kotra, Associate Professor, Department of Biology, Faculty of Science; Dr. Steven J. Hoffman, Director of the Global Strategy Lab and Professor of Global Health, Law, and Political Science; Dr. Murat Kristal, Director, Master of Business Analytics and Director, Master of Management in Artificial Intelligence; Professor Jianhong Wu, Director of Advanced Disaster, Emergency and Rapid Response Simulation and Professor, Mathematics and Statistics, Faculty of Science

As we approach one year in COVID-19 lockdown, this event features a panel of York faculty members who have been recognized with the Minister of Colleges and Universities Awards of Excellence for their commitment to guiding Ontario through the pandemic. Join us on March 3 for a panel discussion with esteemed York faculty:

Dr. Dasantila Golemi-Kotra expertly guided Canadians looking to get through the pandemic safely, offering advice on how to effectively clean and sanitize homes and workplaces, correctly use personal protective equipment, and take necessary safety precautions when out in the community.

Dr. Steven Hoffman engages researchers, implementers, funders and citizens around the world in identifying key areas of focus for research and study to rebuild after the pandemic.

Dr. Murat Kristal developed an analytics dashboard that gives daily insights into the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic. These predictive numbers support policymakers, healthcare administrators and public health officials as they make evidence-based, informed decisions to stop the spread of COVID-19 and keep people safe.

Professor Jianhong Wu is a trailblazer in several renowned national interdisciplinary projects, including the federally funded national infection dynamics modelling project and the geosimulation of disease spread.

Dr. Louise Hartley, Director, York University Psychology Clinic

Resiliency is an essential quality for each of us to have in order to maintain good physical and emotional health. Dr. Hartley will discuss three building blocks of resiliency: emotional intelligence, optimism, and coping skills. The session will also touch on the impact of stress on women, in keeping with the theme of International Women’s Day, which is earlier in the week.
