Next UP Launches Discussion: COVID-19 Impact on Mental Health
COVID-19 emptied out the buildings and grounds of Stanislaus State last March, but it didn’t halt the educational endeavors of the University community. The work of students, faculty, staff and alumni continued and will be celebrated and shared in a new program called Next UP: Forward Thinking @ Stan State. The program launches Friday, March 19 and will center on a timely topic: “COVID-19, Mental Health and Addiction.” The live discussion, from noon to 1 p.m., will feature faculty members Shrinidhi Subramaniam and Suzanne Whitehead and Stan State alumna Quenna Martinez, an officer with Stan State’s University Police Department.
