Good Monday morning:
Before COVID-19, older industrial cities like Detroit, Cleveland and those in Upstate New York were struggling with population loss, high unemployment and poverty. While the pandemic has created a whole new set of challenges, opportunities for change and reform are also emerging. In a new report, the Brookings Institution explains how a prosperous recovery for America’s legacy cities can generate economic benefits for the nation, while also advancing social progress. I recommend this clear-eyed assessment for anyone interested in the future of New York’s bio/med industry.
On this week’s episode of our conversation series, Propelling New York Forward, we talk with Ben Zombek of BZ Design about the role of user experience in device product development. Ben is a innovator in this space and this episode promises to be a compelling and thought provoking discussion. We hope you’ll join us this Thursday at 2:00 pm.
