RSVP required. Register here.

Since being declared a global pandemic in early March, the novel coronavirus has infected more than 950,000 individuals across every state in the U.S. Policymakers are quickly developing strategies to mitigate its effects, prepare for a potential resurgence, and restart the economy while protecting public health. Join Schaeffer Center Director Dana Goldman in a discussion with Amgen Senior Vice President Steven Galson and Schaeffer Center Senior Fellows Bob Kocher and Darius Lakdawalla about public-private efforts to test and mitigate COVID-19. Dr. Kocher serves on Governor Gavin Newsom’s coronavirus testing task force and Dr. Galson is involved in coronavirus testing, research and development at Amgen and previously spent over 20 years in government service, including at the Food & Drug Administration and Centers for Disease Control.

Following the moderated discussion, the panelists will take questions from the audience. Questions can be submitted at any time during the discussion through the Zoom platform.
