COVID Seminar Series – Hindsight is 2020
March 2, 2021 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm PST
The Pacific Northwest National Laboratory will host a COVID Seminar Series event on March 2: “Hindsight is 2020”. The Community Science and Technology Seminar Series was launched to help the general public better understand and explore how science transforms our world.
During this inaugural COVID-19 seminar series talk, Dr. Steven Wiley will discuss the differences in symptoms between a cold, the flu, and COVID-19, in addition to the larger scientific story of COVID-19. What are the dangers, really? What lessons have we learned over the last few months and how does COVID compare to past viral pandemics? What’s left for us to uncover?
