faculty, and community members. Following Dr. Botazzi’s presentation, a panel of community health
leaders shared the successes and challenges they have experienced while promoting health in Latinx
families and communities during the pandemic. The Symposium concluded with a poster session covering
a wide range of topics led by Clemson student and faculty researchers. Thank you to everyone who made
