June 14 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
The Dr. Lawrence H. and Roberta Cohn Forums
Presented jointly with The World from PRX & GBH
An on-demand video will be posted after the event.
The global coronavirus pandemic picture is mixed. While vaccination rates increase and death rates drop in some countries, others are struggling with deadly surges and vaccine shortages. Meanwhile, COVID variants are driving questions about approaches to curb the pandemic. In this Forum, infectious disease and global health experts will come together to discuss how vaccines, emerging variants and disparities in wealth and resources are influencing the course of the pandemic. How can leaders and policymakers work across borders to bridge gaps and protect our shared global future?
