The Path Forward: Mapping a Post-Pandemic World

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 23: Mapping a Post-Pandemic World

What does the future look like for offices, schools, and businesses? What happens to a generation emerging from feelings of grief, isolation, and anxiety? Will we be able – and do we want to – return to our pre-pandemic lives? 

A panel of health and policy experts, moderated by UCSF Department of Medicine Chair Bob Wachter, MD, will examine COVID-19's impact on our society and look ahead to how we rebuild and prepare for the next pandemic.
