Video Added: ‘UC Davis LIVE’ on Reentry After the Pandemic


June 3, 4 p.m. — As pandemic restrictions are lifted in the U.S., people face returning to workplaces and pre-pandemic activities with a mixture of anxiety and elation. What are the psychological issues around going back to offices and mixing with people again? How will employers react to those who want to keep working from home? What does a new normal look like?

Two UC Davis experts in mental health and organizational management will discuss these and other issues on this week’s UC Davis LIVE.

  • Professor Angela Drake is a clinical neuropsychologist at UC Davis Health who treats adults with a wide range of neurological and neuropsychiatric conditions. She helps patients develop new behaviors, thinking patterns and strategies to better manage stress and improve their quality of life and their relationships with others.
  • Kimberly Elsbach is professor of management and holds the Steven G. Newberry Chair in Leadership at the UC Davis Graduate School of Management. She studies how people perceive each other and their organizations, and how those perceptions affect their work. 

The conversation, hosted by Soterios Johnson, will be streamed live on Facebook, YouTube and Twitter beginning at 4 p.m. Thursday, June 3.  

Questions can be submitted via Facebook and Twitter either in advance or during the show.
