Around IUPUI

Upcoming 'Ask Aaron' webinars scheduled

Faculty, staff and students can learn more about the coronavirus and IU's efforts to fight it by participating in an upcoming "Ask Aaron" webinar from Dr. Aaron Carroll, one of the leaders of IU's COVID-19 Medical Response Team.

The campus community needs to continue wearing masks, practicing physical distancing, avoiding large gatherings and getting vaccinated when eligible, he said.

The next webinar for all campuses is April 14. Additional webinars are planned throughout the semester. Those unable to tune in live can watch the recordings at broadcast.iu.edu.
