As the nation gradually reopens from COVID-19 shutdowns, how do we ensure that we’re returning to work and play safely? What’s the latest science around testing, immunity, re-infection risks, and environmental factors such as warming temperatures?
Time spent in nature and the great outdoors is central to life in the Rocky Mountain West. Are there linkages between pandemics and the quality of our environment, such as air pollution, deforestation, and a changing climate?
Join Harvard professors Aaron Bernstein, MD/MPH, and Michael Mina, MD/PhD for a discussion on COVID-19, moderated by Harvard Chan School of Public Health alumni, Janette Heung. The panel will elucidate the latest understanding about the novel coronavirus, identify its linkages with the health of our earth systems, and explore a path forward.
