COVID-19: Spread the Science, not the Virus Seminar Series

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.
