From Global to Local: Informing Seattle’s Pandemic Response
Seattle, WA, USA
Instructions on how to join this virtual meeting will be sent the day before the program.
When COVID-19 appeared in the United States with Seattle as the initial epicenter, public health officials, like so many of their colleagues across the country, lacked first-hand experience in responding to epidemics and massive public health emergencies in their own backyards. But Seattle did have a constellation of hundreds of organizations focused on improving lives in low- and middle-income countries. That is why local public health officials have been working closely with global health experts in Seattle to understand applicable lessons to be learned from their experiences in responding to epidemics in low- and middle-income countries. From mass vaccination efforts to combating misinformation to distributing PPEs, efforts in Seattle have been informed by pre-pandemic practical work being done globally. Join the World Affairs Council of Seattle and Global Washington on March 24 from 12:00-1:00pm for a discussion with global health experts who are using their knowledge from working abroad to improve the COVID-19 response here at home.
