Event Details

The immediate panic of the COVID-19 crisis and pandemic has subsided and we are all trying to navigate the "new normal" that exists in our daily lives. Gatherings limited to 50 people and enforced social distancing make holding our traditional NARI Nights impractical. 

NARI Atlanta has been with you throughout this crisis and we are continuing to support you by offering a series of town-hall discussions, conversations, and presentations all focused on "Turning the Pandemic into a Positive."

Part One in our series will focus on mental health. We are lucky to be joined by Dr. Matthew Norman, a forensic and private practice psychiatrist and one of only 12 psychiatrists in Atlanta included on the list of Atlanta Super Doctors®

Dr. Norman will lead a town-hall discussion about the impacts you may be feeling from the pandemic. You may be feeling negative impacts, but there are positive, healthy, transformative impacts that can come out of the pandemic as well. We'll discuss the state of the world today and how we all fit into it.

When you register, please submit questions or suggestions for topics you would like Dr. Norman to cover. You will also have the opportunity to ask questions live.

100% of registration proceeds will go to NARI Atlanta Member charity:
