Pandemic Diseases Preparedness and Response

Monday, June 22, 2020

Online

Presented By

The New York Academy of Sciences

 

The inevitable has happened, and we, as a world, were unprepared. Even before the new coronavirus, the number and diversity of epidemics has grown in the last three decades. But the ability of governments, communities, and individuals to anticipate, detect, and effectively respond to epidemics with pandemic potential encountered several roadblocks. Gathering world-class leaders from the fields of public health, epidemiology, and national security, this meeting will cover the basic science that drives pandemics, the evolution of emerging pathogens, therapeutics and non-pharmaceutical countermeasures, hotspot prediction, and current weakness in global preparation strategies. Ultimately, this symposium will highlight lessons from both the near and distant past, and illuminate the measures needed to shore up the globe for next time.
