COVID-19 Conversations Webinar Series

Summer of COVID-19:

Mitigating Direct and Indirect Impacts in the Coming Months

May 27, 2020 | 5 – 6:30 p.m. ET

The eighth COVID-19 Conversations webinar will discuss how to best mitigate direct and indirect impacts of COVID-19 over the coming summer months, including continuing economic challenges, addressing the "health debt" accrued from months of prioritization of urgent care, preparing for concurrent emergencies like hurricanes and wildfires as COVID-19 remains a threat, and protecting vulnerable populations from violence and disorder.

The webinar will begin with an introduction from the session's moderator, Nicole Lurie, and then feature a panel discussion among expert speakers, including:

  • Linda Degutis - Adjunct Professor, Emory University Rollins School of Public Health and Lecturer, Yale School of Medicine
  • Craig Fugate - former administrator of FEMA and former director of the Florida Emergency Management Division
  • Kent Smetters - Leonard Davis Institute of Health Economics Senior Fellow, Wharton School Boettner Chair Professor, and Faculty Director, Penn Wharton Budget Model, Wharton Schoo

Additional panelists have been invited and our website will be updated as they accept.

The panel discussion will be followed by a Q&A session with the webinar audience.

This webinar has also been approved for 1.5 continuing education credits for CPH, CME, CNE or CHES. Several days after attending the webinar, those who watched the entire activity will receive an email with info on how to complete the online evaluation and then claim their credits.
