These resources will be available to access at leisure on June 4. The next day, a series of scheduled live video Q&A sessions with the keynote speaker and session speakers will allow participants to ask questions on the sessions they viewed the day before.
The summit will feature a series of five keynote sessions by Dr. Matt Bloom, associate professor at the University of Notre Dame and principle investigator at the Wellbeing at Work program.
