Webinar: Public-Private Efforts to Test and Mitigate COVID-19
Wednesday, April 29 at 1:00pm
This is a past event.
Since being declared a global pandemic in early March, the novel coronavirus has infected more than 950,000 people 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, Amgen Senior Vice President Steven Galson, and Schaeffer Center Senior Fellows Bob Kocher and Darius Lakdawalla in a discussion about public-private efforts to test and mitigate COVID-19. Dr. Kocher serves on Governor Gavin Newsom's coronavirus testing task force. Lakdawlla is an expert in pharmaceutical economics and is developing testing models. 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.
