COVID-19 Conversations Webinar 1

Meeting Description:

The first COVID-19 Conversations webinar will review how COVID-19 is transmitted, historical lessons from past pandemics, the state of the science on social distancing, and the targeted and layered nature of how social distancing practices are enacted.



The NAM-APHA series of rapid-response webinars will address the state of the science on COVID-19 and explore emerging evidence on how to best mitigate its impact.



Led by a panel of expert advisors chaired by Carlos del Rio and Nicole Lurie, the series will feature trusted experts in such fields as public health, infectious disease, risk communication, and crisis standards of care. The series will provide trustworthy scientific analysis of important developments in the COVID-19 response to inform policymakers, public health practitioners, clinicians, business leaders, and scientists.
