COVID-19: Spread the Science, not the Virus, is an interactive seminar series organized by Drs. Frasso & Patel and Robert Wilson of JCPH's MPH Program. The goal of the series is to help the Jefferson Community learn what we can about COVID-19 and its impact on public health and the healthcare system.
The weekly lecture series will feature experts with information you can use to better understand the role of public health in addressing the pandemic. Topics include: epidemiology, policy, public health response, medical countermeasures, health disparities, mental health aspects, and communication challenges as it relates to the disease as well as lessons learned from local and global perspectives.
