ACT Director, Tom Carroll, will be presenting at URMC’s Unmasked conference on Thursday, 5/28, in the 1-2pm hour on Remote ACT (Re-ACT), which is our effort to help our friends and colleagues prepare for difficult conversations around COVID. Please join us!

We very much appreciate the opportunity to help our friends and colleagues prepare for communication challenges of the COVID crisis. We are fortunate to have not had a “surge” similar to other parts of the country and world, and our thoughts and prayers are with everyone effected.
Given that the success of our ACT for COVID Zoom sessions exceeded our expectations and that the COVID crisis has lessened for the time being, we are going to suspend Zoom sessions after April 30.
We remain available, and happily willing, to discuss communication challenges and successes. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to us here!
Our ACT for COVID resources will also remain freely available for anyone who is interested, please feel free to share them with friends and colleagues!
