Icon and word ask

ASK the Expert events are open periods of regularly scheduled time where you can ask questions to health care providers, mental health professionals, social workers, advocates, and lawyers. Two (2) events each week will include unique opportunities to ask all of the questions you wonder about, but don’t know where or how to find the answers.  Most sessions will be in a webinar-format (on Zoom), but some may be via Twitter Chat.

Initiated in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, questions and topics discussed may focus on medical issues, mental health concerns, coping skills, access to public benefits, links to resources, where and how to access support. Each session will have a broad focus within these areas. Come with your questions. Sit back. Or lean in.

If you miss the live events, they’ll be recorded!

All ASK events will have an ASL interpreter.  Please reach out with any access needs.
