About this Event
One Year. 2.5 Million Lives. A Global Shift.
A year after the World Health Organization declared the novel coronavirus a pandemic, recovery efforts around the world are gaining some traction: Vaccines are rolling out, case rates are trending lower, and cities are gradually reopening. But what roadblocks lie ahead? Can we ever return to our pre-pandemic lives? What does the world look like a year from now and beyond?
UCSF is pleased to invite the public to a series of panel discussions that will look back on the lessons from the first 365 days of COVID-19 and illuminate the road ahead.
March 9: How the Science Will Drive Recovery
An unprecedented push to understand, treat, and vaccinate against COVID-19 has proven the wonders of modern technology – but can we go faster? What challenges could derail our recovery? What are our best hopes for fighting future viral threats?
Join a panel of leading scientists, moderated by UCSF Executive Vice Chancellor and Provost Dan Lowenstein, MD, to examine what we know and how we can better tackle the next outbreak.
