Covid Today: Is America Really Ready to Re-Open? Webinar With Emily Oster and Ashish Jha 8/4/2020


Join Emily Oster, economist and creator of the facts-based COVID-Explained website, and Ashish Jha, director of the Harvard Global Health Institute (and soon to be dean of the Brown School of Public Health), for an hour-long Q&A on the current public health crisis. As economies reopen, schools hope to solidify Fall plans, and case numbers spike or flatten in different regions across the Globe. Oster and Jha will host this candid conversation with the Brown community, answering questions, and making clear what the experts know, and what is still unclear.

Tuesday, August 4, 2020.  12 p.m. – 1 p.m.
