COVID-19 has shaken the global economy, tested the resilience of governments, and transformed daily life. Yet, its consequences could be far more profound in years to come, especially for global health.
Join Lloyd Minor, Dean of Stanford University School of Medicine, for a fireside chat with Bill Gates, co-chair of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and co-founder of Microsoft, to discuss strategies and innovations needed to end the COVID-19 pandemic, the future that follows, and the global health challenges we will face in the pandemic’s wake.
Their conversation will cover:
● Deploying a COVID-19 vaccine to 7.5 billion people
● COVID-19’s effects on poverty and the health of children
● Rebuilding public trust amidst science skepticism
● Learnings from this moment that can inform future global health responses
We hope you join us for this special StanfordMed LIVE event.
