As Texas reopens, there are many questions left outstanding. How do we navigate the flood of information from various sources? How do we stay safe as restrictions are lifted while the infection rates of COVID-19 continue to increase?

Lemard-Marlow and Stephanie Hayden, the director of Austin Public Health for the City of Austin, will discuss what local city agencies are doing to answer these questions and what we need to do to stay safe as Texas reopens.

Fulfilling Your Organization's Mission When COVID-19 Interferes

Thursday, June 11, 2020
12:30-1:30 p.m.
Imagine being on vacation when a global health pandemic breaks out. Now imagine you are the CEO of a highly specialized, long-term in-patient hospital for patients who need to be in the intensive care unit for weeks or months. Next, imagine you are also the president of a board for a nonprofit organization that has a surgical medical mission planned in the upcoming months.

Learn how Curt Roberts, the chief executive officer of Cornerstone Hospitals of Austin and Round Rock and president of the Austin Smiles board, was able to plan, pivot and persevere to fulfill both organizations' missions as COVID-19 was reshaping our world. Lemard-Marlow and Roberts will explore crisis management techniques and the mishaps and wins in a stimulating conversation about lessons learned, best practices and more.
