Given the impact of COVID-19 on all of our lives, we are starting a new virtual series for the summer called "Summer AmAs", where we invite experts from across the university to give a short presentation and take questions on issues that are important to our members during this difficult time. To that end, the Chairs are happy to announce Summer HarvardWIT+ AMA’s (Ask Me Anything’s), hour-long informal discussions on topics we know are important to all of you.
