Emergency Contact Information

Looking Out for Each Other in Zoom Classes

In September 2020, a university teacher in Argentina collapsed and died while conducting a Zoom class. When she collapsed her students did not know where to send help or who to contact.

With this in mind, please do one of the following when taking a Zoom class with me:

  • When you first enter our class please type the following into the "Chat" addressed to me (not everyone): the name and phone number of someone I can call/text in case you are injured or fall ill during one of my Zoom classes...or, the address you are at so that emergency responders can come to you. This is especially important if you are home alone during the class and no family/friends are attending class with you. New to Chat? I'll coach you...please ask.

  • Invite family/friends to take class via Zoom, from a location different than yours...someone who knows your address and emergency contact information and has your permission to give that out in order to get you help, if needed;

  • Not home alone? Let folks at home with you know you are taking a virtual class and to check-in with you.
