Our Augsburg Bold speaker series kicks-off today Friday, Sept. 25 at 3:10–3:50 p.m. with Katie Clark ’10 MAN, ’14 DNP. Katie will be presenting “Being Bold: Caring while in Solidarity”.
Anyone in the community—students, faculty, or staff—can register.
About the presentation: During this presentation, stories will be shared of providing care to people experiencing homelessness in Minneapolis in the wake of COVID-19 and the recent unrest. These efforts, grounded in the work of the Health Commons, a nursing-led drop-in center organized by Augsburg University’s Department of Nursing, will demonstrate how Auggies connect to the community in ways that uplift mission-driven work as it asks us all to be bold.
