Time and experience are both great teachers. The understanding one gains can often be distilled into important lessons and can help navigate the greater challenges that inevitably lie ahead. In his Talk, Dr. Blackwell will share his journey post UCI and the lessons he learned along the way through a variety of experiences that ultimately helped him understand that we are never really lost, rather if we look back we realize that we have, after all, navigated through uncertainty before. He will share how he learned to use his experiences throughout his professional and personal journey – and the many opportunities and challenges he has faced along to the way – to get to where he is today.
