Harvard Medical School Executive Education

Event Details

As the coronavirus pandemic enters a new phase, science that can guide vaccination prioritization and business’ return-to-work strategies are more important than ever. In this Harvard Medical School Executive Education webinar, we will explore the experience of the NBA bubble, in which players were sequestered at the Walt Disney World Resort. Data from this longitudinal testing program has important implications for our understanding of the natural history of SARS-CoV-2 infection and the utility of frequent testing strategies. In addition, we will discuss modeling studies that compare different prioritization strategies for Covid vaccination, and their implications for public health policy.

Featured Speaker: Yonatan Grad, MD, PhD, Melvin J. and Geraldine L. Glimcher Associate Professor, Department of Immunology and Infectious Diseases, Harvard TH Chan School of Public Health; Member of the Division of Infectious Diseases at Brigham and Women’s Hospital
