Public Health continuing its ‘Conversations about COVID-19’

The Graduate School of Public Health is once again offering a series of Conversations about COVID-19, starting Sept. 11.

The 10 weekly seminars will take place online from 4 to 5 p.m. Fridays. Pitt Public Health hosted another series of conversations for eight weeks in May and June. Recordings of those session are available on the Public Health website.

“The goal of the fall COVID-19 seminar series is to provide our school community, alumni, and the public with credible information about the virus and the associated health impacts,” the website says.

The new series of talks kicks off Sept. 11 with “The History and Future of COVID-19” presented by Amy Hartman, an assistant professor of Infectious Disease & Microbiology and a part of the Center for Vaccine Research, and Donald Burke, professor of Health Science and Policy, Epidemiology, and dean emeritus of the Graduate School of Public Health.

John Williams, head of Pitt’s COVID-19 Medical Response Office and chief of the medical school's Division of Infectious Diseases, will give a talk Sept. 25 on “COVID-19 on Campus.”

The weekly conversations conclude on Nov. 13 with a discussion on “COVID-19 Vaccine Development & Testing.”

Registration is required to receive the Zoom link and password. All sessions will be recorded and made available at a later date.
