The virtual event is July 12-16.

The theme of this year’s event is “Resilience” and will include top safety experts and partners from around the world to learn proven injury-prevention strategies, discover helpful resources, fuel creativity and make lasting connections.

Professor Brinker Brouwer is a featured speaker and moderator for two conference sessions: “Children and Automated Vehicles: What Do We Need to Know and Do?” and “Plenary: Children and Automated Vehicles.” Joining her at the Plenary session to discuss this emerging technology is U.S. Department of Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg.

Health Insurance Verification Period Ends July 31

All enrolled, degree-seeking students are required to carry health insurance coverage. Students are automatically enrolled in the insurance and must provide proof of insurance to be waived on an annual basis.

Students who have coverage through their parents or other means must provide proof of health insurance once a year through a third party, Wellfleet (formerly Consolidated Health Plans (CHP)), which verifies coverage through their online system.

Students who fail to provide proof of health insurance through the verification process will remain enrolled in the Wellfleet Student Health Insurance Plan. The University will make no exceptions.

Students and parents can contact Wellfleet at (877) 657-5030 for more information on policy coverage. The deadline for the verification process is 5 p.m., July 31. After that date, all students who have not been approved for a waiver will be responsible for the $1,358 insurance premium on their account and will have health insurance coverage from July 1, 2021 to June 30, 2022.
