Department of Medicine Covid-19 Grand Rounds: A Conversation with Ashish Jha (Zoom Only)

A Conversation with Ashish Jha

Session moderated by Bob Wachter

In this UCSF Medical Grand Rounds, Bob Wachter will be in conversation with Ashish Jha, Professor of Global Health at Harvard University and the Director of the Harvard Global Health Institute at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. Next month, he will become Dean of the Brown University School of Public Health. Ashish, who was a UCSF resident and chief resident, is the nation’s leading expert in evidence-based healthcare policy, particularly as it relates to the costs and quality of care. He is also an expert on global health policy and, during the Covid-19 pandemic, has been one of the most visible experts in communicating with the public and profession about the policy response to Covid, appearing multiple times on virtually every major news and talk show. We’ll talk about communicating in the Covid era, what local and national policymakers have gotten right and wrong, Covid testing, the schools, how Covid will change the healthcare system… basically, all the issues that the country is grappling with as we try to get a handle on the pandemic.
