The COVID-19 pandemic is the single biggest threat to global public health and the economy. The circumstances provide UCI the opportunity to assemble an expert cadre of health professionals, business leaders and policymakers to take a deep dive into the “new normal” currently defined by COVID-19 and what can be expected in its aftermath.

This panel will discuss the current state of health, the continued threat that the pandemic poses to individuals and the community, and navigating the new realities in healthcare (telemedicine, public health, testing, surveillance and contact tracing).
