Cobb & Friends - header - 1300x500

Each Tuesday at 10:00am PST the Cobb Institute community gathers to hear presentations from prominent speakers across a wide variety of fields, all of whom align with the vision of the Institute in one way or another. These gatherings are also a time for lively discussion between community members and the presenter(s), with space for Q&A following the presentation.
