RUTH’S LIST FLORIDA HOSTS WISE WOMEN WEDNESDAY: TO ADDRESS CONCERNS AMID COVID-19 OUTBREAK
Tampa, Florida – Ruth’s List Florida, the state’s only resource dedicated to recruiting and aiding Democratic women candidates, held their first Wise Women Wednesday webinar on March 18th at 10:00 AM addressing the Coronavirus.
Ruth’s List Florida has the unique privilege of having a long list of candidates, staff, volunteers, members and leadership who have a wide breadth of knowledge in business, public health, education, finance, health care and government. “RLF is a community of women leaders not only in elected office and those seeking elected office. Our Executive Board, staff and regional members have leaders from many facets in our state. Our goal is to tap their professional insight into this crisis and provide well grounded facts and information. Our concern is that social media is often not fact based. And we believe transparent open discourse is vital amid this crisis.” Pamela Goodman, President and CEO of Ruth’s List Florida.
Ruth’s List Florida engaged some of our highly regarded thought leaders to educate Floridian’s on the impact of COVID-19- Dr. Kayser Enneking, Barbara Zdravecky, Karla Hernández-Mats, and The Honorable Alex Sink. Presenters addressed staying healthy, healthcare systems, what we know about the virus, the impact on schools, children and families, economic concerns and advice and the need for self-care and the impact on our mental health. This webinar was provided free of charge before a maximum capacity audience.
The webinar was recorded and is available to view at HERE.
