Check ‘Ask Aaron’ webinars and vaccine website for latest information

As IUPUI continues safety protocols and mitigation testing to keep faculty, staff and students safe from COVID-19, and the rollout of vaccines continues statewide, it’s a good idea to stay current on the latest information about those efforts.

Dr. Aaron Carroll, one of the leaders of IU’s COVID-19 Medical Response Team, hosts weekly “Ask Aaron” webinars that are an opportunity for faculty, staff and students to have their questions answered. Additional “Ask Aaron” webinars are planned throughout the semester. Those unable to tune in live can watch the recordings at
