Archived Hokie Talk: Virginia Tech’s COVID-19 Response: Science and Engineering in Service to Community Health
“Thank you for the invitation for the program this evening . It was very well done. I was surprised when my chat room comment to the panelists – on the great success across disciplines and the need to share with students as an example of not working in silos – was used to close the meeting. One of the greatest challenges a leader faces is connecting the dots across internal and external entities and the team clearly nailed it!”
– Mark Salyer '81, MBA, CPA
Hokies are interested to learn what’s new at Virginia Tech, especially how we are tackling the complex problems to help make communities stronger. HokieTalks are hour-long conversations that give Hokies an exciting insider look at current research that is making a difference. The talks are short and engaging, and attendees are encouraged to ask questions.
