March 17: Live Webcast: Johns Hopkins experts address latest #COVID19 developments

Alumni and Friends,

COVID-19 is now a global pandemic. Businesses are shuttering, classes are canceled, and financial markets are taking significant hits.

This is a critical time for information but also for the support and reassurance that science and evidence can offer. What actions do we know are effective in pandemics? Does social distancing truly make a difference in an outbreak? What have we learned about COVID-19 that can inform how we prepare and respond in our daily lives?
Experts from the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health will answer these questions and more in a 30-minute webcast at 11:30 am ET, Tuesday, March 17, 2020.
