COVID-19: The Current State of Affairs & Thoughts on Re-Entry
April 28, 2020

Featuring Scott Gottlieb, MD

Dr. Scott Gottlieb has emerged as one of the leading voices in the COVID-19 pandemic crisis. We were pleased to hear his initial thoughts just as the lockdowns went into effect in mid-March. Please join us on Tuesday, April 28 at 11:30am to hear his thoughts six weeks later on the current state of the curve and its trajectory; what the new normal will look like and how we can get there; the testing situation and the outlook for drug treatment and vaccines.

Dr. Gottlieb will provide an update on the current status of the COVID-19 crisis and thoughts on how to move forward into a new normal. Key discussion topics will be:

  • Where are we in the curve?
  • What does the new normal look like and what is our path there?
  • Where are we with testing, treatments, and potential vaccines?
