The Reentry Phenomenon: A Blueprint to Navigate the New Normal 

We’re navigating unchartered territory as we shift into the new era of the pandemic. Unlike early theories that the reentry phenomenon would resemble “The Roaring Twenties,” the reality is likely to be much more complex. In this talk, Dr. Aditi Nerurkar offers a data-driven, science-backed blueprint to maximize our potential for a smooth and seamless transition. Since change is perceived as an inherent stressor to our brain, this blueprint works with our biology rather than against it. By highlighting key, actionable and practical strategies, Dr. Nerurkar prepares the audience to make the cognitive leap into the new normal.
