GLID 550 - Conversations with GLID
The topic of this semester’s Conversations with GLID class will be “How to End a Pandemic.” This conversations class will focus on stories from the front lines of people engaged in ending the COVID-19 pandemic and the steps they have taken to mitigate the impacts of the virus. COVID-19 has demonstrated that ending a pandemic requires a multisectoral response. This course will highlight how a multidisciplinary approach to infectious diseases has worked in practice. Guest speakers each week will discuss their pandemic activities, such as designing the logistics to vaccinate the American population, ramping up the vaccine development process, advising governments and private sector entities, creating surveillance testing programs, communicating public health practices to the public, standing up contact tracing programs, protecting vulnerable populations, organizing governors, and keeping hospitals safe. Students will be asked to introduce speakers, come up with weekly discussion questions, and write at least one reflection.
