DIVE IN – Festival for Diversity & Inclusion in Insurance
Covid is a wake up alarm, for health systems across the world, more so for mental health. And like all our alarm clocks, the first reaction is to hit the snooze button. My perspective on why hitting the snooze button again and going back to sleep is not an option. Its time to wake up and get to work.
