One Year Later: COVID-19 and the Road Ahead

Microscopic view of COVID-19 virus

This event will feature Michael Mina and be hosted by Harvard Kennedy School’s Institute of Politics. Learn more about the event here. Register here. Watch the livestream here.

On the eve of the first anniversary of the COVID-19 shutdown, the Institute of Politics gathers the experts from our final in-person Forum event last March to reflect on the past year. Our guests analyze the government and public health response, vaccine development and distribution, and what the future holds with a mutating virus and worldwide variants. How well did the government do with public messaging? Did the public heed the warnings and do their part to stop the spread of the virus?

Join the IOP as we welcome back Juliette Kayyem, Professor at the Harvard Kennedy School, Faculty Chair of the Homeland Security and Global Health Project; Helen Branswell, Senior Writer, Infectious Disease at STAT; and Dr. Michael J. Mina, MD, Ph.D., Assistant Professor of Epidemiology at Harvard T. H. Chan School of Public Health with moderator Rick Berke, Co-founder & Executive Editor at STAT and IOP Senior Advisory Committee Member.
