Advances in Health, Housing and Historical Politics

Dear Colleagues and Friends,

Change is constant in our lives as are advances to address our shifting world and its impacts on health, housing and historical politics.

Today, I share news about how UWM researchers are studying the pandemic’s effects on adolescent brain development, a UW student team in the top 10 finalists of the Department of Energy’s competition to design a new energy efficient home, and how former Florida Gov.
