Students can pick up tickets from the Phillips Center box office starting at noon today. Remaining tickets will be available to the public at noon Tuesday.

Carter will deliver a speech about her book “Within Our Reach: Ending the Mental Health Crisis,” followed by a mediated discussion with Dr. Nancy Hardt, UF College of Medicine’s director of Health Disparities and Service Learning Programs, said Accent Chairman Corey Flayman.
