Lori Hernandez talks about mental health and gymnastics at the Cornell Q&A

Two-time Olympic medalist and Dancing With the Stars champion Lori Hernandez discussed gymnastics and mental health in a conversation Friday night. During the event, Hernandez shared that her journey to Team USA was marked by injuries, setbacks and resilience.

The Cornell University Program Board, in collaboration with La Asociacion Latina, hosted the live conversation and Q&A.
