Lessons for the future - COVID 19 strategies

Uppsala University Bay Area Alumni Chapter hosts a panel on “ Lessons for the future - COVID 19 strategies” with doctors from Uppsala University & UC Davis.

As COVID 19 spread all over the world, different countries decided on different strategies. Sweden chose a different strategy to California. So what can we learn from these different approaches?

Join our seminar on October 12th at 12pm(PST)/9PM (CET) when Dr. Tove Fall from Uppsala University joins Dr.Theodore Wun, Dr. Stuart Cohen , Dr. Nicholas J. Kenyon , and Mark Romney from UC Davis to discuss vital learnings for the future.

Uppsala Alumni Lars Berglund, Distinguished Professor Emeritus and former Associate Vice Chancellor and Vice Dean at UC Davis will be moderating the discussion.

This event is free and open for all UU alumni.

Main topics of discussion

What have we learned regarding effective strategies for future pandemics?

How can medical centers, public health experts and public leaders engage the public - the ultimate stakeholder?

How do we share best practices with speed and ease on a global level? How can we enable local actors to share their experiences with a world wide audience?

How do we best utilise our resources? What should the ethical considerations be when deciding on standard of care?
