History and Public Health–Reflecting on One Year of Covid-19

March 10 @ 6:00 pm

Expert panelists reflect on one year of managing and responding to the impact of COVID-19. We’ll discuss the history of past pandemics and how that informs the development of treatment and vaccines, the importance of a science-based approach and the ongoing work to manage the pandemic and overcome disparities between communities as the vaccines are rolled out.

During the conversation we’ll explore the history of other health crises including the Spanish flu, smallpox and polio and how they compare to our fight against COVID-19 today. We’ll unpack the history of vaccines and learn how our knowledge of coronaviruses led to a quick turnaround in the development of our current vaccine.
