The American Public Health Association and the National Academy of Medicine are sponsoring a webinar series exploring the state of the science surrounding the current outbreak of COVID-19 in the United States and globally, with a focus on the emerging evidence on how to best mitigate its impact. From the UNC Department of Medicine’s Division of Infectious Diseases, Myron Cohen, MD, is part of an expert panel June 24.

The tenth COVID-19 Conversations webinar will discuss how scientists are learning to treat COVID-19, including presentations on: how scientists have adapted clinical trials to respond to the restrictions and requirements of a pandemic response; best practices in clinical care for those with COVID-19 right now; and promising therapeutics and preventive drugs currently enrolled in clinical trials globally.
