Into the second year of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, join us for a thought-provoking discussion on what we have learned and how we prepare for future pandemics. Leading experts will examine the scientific, social and economic implications of COVID-19 and share a roadmap for tackling future pandemics.
