Health & Well-Being / Environmental Impact

Health and Well-being and Environmental Impact

How has the pandemic impacted our health and well-being? For this theme, students engaged those issues surrounding health and healthcare in this country. Inquiries ranged from access to health insurance, support for frontline workers, the international race for the vaccine, as well as human fragility and the toll quarantine is taking on our bodies and emotional well-being. Students looked into the enduring visual and material culture of the pandemic and the emblems of health such as masks, toilet paper, and hand sanitizer. Additionally, students considered the lives and struggles of the “heroes” of the pandemic: healthcare works.
