Community Matters: UCSF and the Bay Area's Fight Against COVID-19 - Livestream

more covidOn the exact 6-month anniversary of San Francisco’s shelter-in-place ordnance, UCSF infectious disease experts look back at what we’ve learned about the strengths and weaknesses of our public health systems and look forward to the next stage of the fight against COVID-19. 

Panelists will discuss how the pandemic has taken advantage of inequities in our society to continue spreading despite the region’s early response - and the growing understanding that stemming the tide of COVID-19 will require much greater support for low-income essential workers, incarcerated populations, and others least able to protect themselves. They will explore how partnerships between community leaders, UCSF scientists, and public health officials are pointing the way forward to a more just, equitable and effective response to the pandemic.

Panel:

  • Joe DeRisi, UC San Francisco and Chan Zuckerberg Biohub
  • Diane Havlir, MD, UC San Francisco
  • Jon Jacobo, TODCO Group
  • Brie Williams, UC San Francisco Geriatrics
  • Kirsten Bibbins-Domingo, UC San Francisco School of Medicine, Moderator
