Preventing the next pandemic: New tools for global surveillance 

October 17th @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

The coronavirus pandemic revealed huge flaws in global health security. And the risk of another such outbreak is very real. Can we predict—and then prevent—the next pandemic? In this panel, we’ll hear from leading scientists about the new tools they’re deploying to track and respond to emerging pathogens. Moderated by Betsy McKay, global health reporter for The Wall Street Journal, this event will explore lessons learned from COVID-19—and examine how prepared we are for the next big public health threat.
