COVID-19 Live Webcast with Johns Hopkins Experts

March 2, 2020 @ 11:30 am - 12:00 pm EST

With COVID-19 now spreading via community transmission in the U.S. and the World Health Organization raising its risk assessment to “very high,” the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health will host a 30-minute webcast featuring some of the best minds addressing this global health concern.

You’ll hear from Dr. Jennifer Nuzzo and Dr. Tara Kirk Sell of the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security and Lauren Sauer of the Johns Hopkins Office of Critical Event Preparedness and Response. The conversation will be moderated by Dr. Joshua Sharfstein, Vice Dean of the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health and former secretary of Maryland’s Department of Health.

They’ll discuss the findings of the Global Health Security Index referenced by President Trump last week, what you need to know about community transmission and how to protect yourself from misinformation. They will also answer viewer questions submitted before and during the broadcast.
