We hope that you’ve been staying safe, and finding moments of joy and peace, even though it's hard right now. We also wanted to share opportunities for honoring the 50th anniversary of Earth Day and what would have been Take Your Kids to Work Day next week. 

To help us honor Earth Day in this present moment, our colleague, Dr. Al Armendariz, will share insights from the Harvard study released last week which found a connection between poorer air quality and people having a higher risk of mortality from the coronavirus. Dr. Armendariz got his PhD from the School of Public Health at the University of North Carolina (UNC) and has been working with our Comms staff to talk about the study with reporters from around the country. Please join Al for a Science Hour on Tuesday April 21st at 4pm ET/1 pm PT. We’ll record this webinar in case you miss it. (LINK)
