TIME: Tuesday, April 28, 2020, 4:00 PM to 5:15 PM EDT
PLATFORM: Zoom webinar (call-in information will be provided following event sign-up)
DESCRIPTION: The arrival of the coronavirus in both China and the United States has further strained an already frayed bilateral relationship. Yet, if the world is to deal with the COVID-19 pandemic and prepare for future health crises, the two nations must work together to confront the immediate issues of medical treatment and equipment, and the longer- term need to develop and produce necessary vaccines.
Join the National Committee on April 28 at 4:00 p.m. EDT for a virtual program where Joan Kaufman of Schwarzman Scholars will host a conversation with two leading medical experts: Margaret Hamburg of the National Academy of Medicine and Winnie Yip of the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, as they discuss the potential for collaboration between the United States and China on global health strategies.
