CARTA is grateful to all participants who took the time to connect with us via their shared experiences or by expanding their minds with new perspectives!

Enjoy the symposium again to immerse yourself in our continuing human story:

If you would like to enjoy the experience again, or if you missed all or part of the symposium, please stay tuned! As usual, all talks, as well as the live audience Q&A/expert discussion, were recorded and have already begun to air on UCSD-TV. All recorded CARTA symposia are permanently archived on multiple sites, including CARTA's Video Archives, UCSD-TV, iTunes, and YouTube. Professionally edited recordings include high-quality closed captions to enhance your viewing experience. Closed captions are made possible through support from viewers like you, this time through the generosity of CARTA Patrons Ingrid M. Benirschke-Perkins & Gordon C. Perkins. We will share an update as soon as all videos become available online.
