“COVID-19 Unleashes Telemedicine Innovations:
New Paradigms for Delivering Patient Care”
The arrival of COVID-19 and the pandemic-generated distancing protocols necessitated by it --- have forced a rapid departure from standard medical practice as we have known it: indefinite postponements of elective surgeries; cancellations of routine screenings, lab work, dental care; and elimination of face-to-face, hands-on contact with our cherished family physicians. All replaced, at least for now, by an unfamiliar world of Chat Bot screening tools; algorithm-based query agents like Vicki Vanguard; and remote patient monitoring (RPM) regimens for performing our own self-guided evaluations, under the direction of PA Navigators. On May 12th, our panel of physicians will take us into this unfolding telehealth world and advise how we can get the most from these evolving technologies, with all their attendant pros & cons. They will also address how this is transforming their respective medical practices --- and reconfiguring the doctor-patient relationship.

Friends Annual Mary Pitcairn Keating Lecture: The Redemptive Power of Architecture
In Fall 2018, Sir David Adjaye was selected to lead the process of designing a new home for the Princeton University Art Museum. As that work continues, join Sir David in a heavily illustrated and timely conversation with Museum Director James Steward about the power of architecture—its capacities to offer solace, to convey grace, to shape place, and even to improve the world. Participants will have the opportunity to put forward questions at the conclusion of the conversation.

Donate your old smart phone to Connect For COVID-19!
Help this unique service project go “viral”
Imagine you are alone in a hospital, in quarantine, and you can’t even connect with family and friends because you don’t have a smart phone…
At virus hotspots across the country, countless patients - especially elderly and low-income - are suffering in social isolation without a smart device to stay connected to their families and communities. Sunny Sandhu (class of 2020) has come up with a wonderful service project, "Connect for COVID-19", and he has enlisted his classmates and alumni to help him.
“Connect for COVID-19” (www.connectforcovid19.com) collects donations of smart devices (smartphones, tablets, laptops, spare chargers, unused earbuds) from individuals and organizations. These donations give digital access for vulnerable populations (seniors, low-income, etc.) helping tackle the social isolation of COVID-19 patients in hospitals and other care facilities. These donations also enable remote access for medical staff on the frontlines. These intrepid, masked students work with hospitals and nursing homes across the country to ensure donated devices go to the people that need it most as they fight COVID-19.
It's so easy - fill out a form, take a photo of your devices and chargers, and then volunteers come to your house to pick up the devices. Yeah, in the Princeton area they make it ridiculously easy. They make it contact free too.
For outside the Princeton area, if you submit the donation form online, they will provide donation mailing instructions.
“Connect for COVID-19” needs phones no older than iPhone 6. Any phone that can handle Facebook and WhatsApp and text messaging. They need iPads and laptops. They need power cords, chargers, unused earbuds. They need money to buy chargers because most people don’t donate those. The device can't have any cracks and must still be working for the donation to be effective.
Security of data? There are instructions on line on how to wipe your device of data, and then the students have tech volunteers who continue to wipe out your data if you missed something.
“Connect for COVID-19” is in contact with hospitals all over New Jersey. The nurses help the seniors learn how to use the phones if that is a problem. The devices break the social isolation that many older folks and all COVID-19 patients are experiencing. This way the donation recipient can see family and friends at time where this matters more than ever.
Three ways to help:
Donate devices and power cords and chargers -
Spread the Word -
Share this website with your social networks, friends and family
Donate money through the GoFundMe campaign -
For more details, and coordinating corporate donations, please reach out to Sunny himself:

LIFE Magazine’s Photojournalism and the American Century
The Princeton University Art Museum presents: LIFE Magazine’s Photojournalism and the American Century
Join us for a live webinar roundtable with Princeton faculty members Jeremy Adelman (History), Thomas Y. Levin (German), and Katherine Hill Reischl (Slavic) and the prize-winning documentary photographer Susan Meiselas as they discuss how Life used photographs in its weekly publication, from 1936 to 1972, as a way to establish its view of the world as a first draft of history.
Consider, for example, coverage of the liberation of Nazi concentration camps at the end of World War II: what did it mean for Life to publish six pages full of detailed, horrible photographs in the midst of a weekly issue dedicated to “The German People”? Another ready example is a story Life undertook at the behest of the Kennedy administration to try to curtail the global spread of Communism in the face of poverty.
Was Life merely playing the imperialist, or are such global exchanges the basis of something more lasting?
Join the live roundtable at https://princeton.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_UkCswNgJR3KndXYvrGtyKg. (when prompted, click to sign in as “attendee”)
This roundtable is held in conjunction with the exhibition LIFE Magazine and the Power of Photography and made possible in part by support from the Humanities Council’s David A. Gardner ’69 Magic Project, Princeton University. Moderated by Katherine A. Bussard, the Peter C. Bunnell Curator of Photography.
