Emma and Maddie converse over the UND Summit, who was there, what they discussed, what it means in the aviation world, and what we can do to keep pushing for aeromedical reform. The UND Mental Health Summit was held in Chicago, December 15, 2021, in honor of John A. Hauser; a UND aviation student who passed away in October of this year. John was a compassionate person who should be here today, and if it would have been for different mental health protocols enacted by the FAA, one could hope he would still be here.
We utilized Flying Mag article as a general outline of the summit but direct summit links can be found on UND Aerospace YouTube for further detail.
