Join the Health & Aging funders for a meeting focused on the role of public health in combatting the current pandemic and preparing for future crises. Today, more than ever, timely and accurate public health messaging, data, and interventions are needed to keep our communities healthy.

As New Jersey begins to reopen, will there be new health protocols for restaurants and businesses? What will contract tracing look like and what are the barriers for implementation? When a COVID-19 vaccine is developed, who will have access? Should philanthropy play a role in data collection or public health messaging to ensure all communities have access to accurate information?

We will begin to explore these questions and more during this virtual meeting.

Speakers:
Dr. Perry Halkitis, Dean and Professor of Biostatistics and Urban-Global Public Health, Rutgers School of Public Health
Katie Zapert, Director of Research, Rutgers School of Public Health
Dr. George DiFerdinando, Chair, Princeton Board of Health
