Dr. Yaneer Bar-Yam, president of New England Complex Systems Institute and leader of endcoronavirus.org, a volunteer coalition formed to develop solutions to eliminate COVID-19, Zoomed with Irving Steel’s BU321: Human Resource Management class at Mitchell College recently.
After the class, student Christina Corbeil commented: “In Dr. Bar-Yam’s words, ‘no one person can change what society does, but we can all work together to solve the pandemic.’ That means that it is our job to follow the guidelines and if we do that it can lower the rate of COVID-19 cases…wear a mask…stay 6 feet apart, wash hands, and sanitize when going out in public.”
Words of wisdom, all around!
