Lecture – Lessons Learned from the COVID-19 Pandemic: The Silver Lining and More

When: April 29, 2021 8:15am to 9:30am

The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on every aspect of society, particularly healthcare, is undeniable. The pandemic has revealed vulnerabilities in critical resource supplies, tested the limits of crisis response capabilities and made systemic health inequalities plainly clear. It also revealed the remarkable resilience of people and organizations, stimulated positive change and innovation and focused the world on a common goal for the first time in decades, if not history. Join forward-thinking healthcare providers, researchers and experts to discuss what we have learned from the pandemic and how we can build a healthier future.
