The Path Forward: The COVID-19 Mandate for Equity

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 16: The Mandate for Equity

COVID-19 exposed many vulnerabilities in our society. Economic and racial inequities fueled the virus’ spread, ensuring that no one was safe from its threat.

A panel of public health officials, experts, and advocates, moderated by Kirsten Bibbins-Domingo, PhD, MD, MAS, co-founder of the UCSF Center for Vulnerable Populations, will examine how communities and nations can better address inequities to prevent the next crisis.
