Event.Main 300720 (1)

In this discussion, Dr. Shireen Kassam, Dr. Jacob Stegenga, and Dr. Nisreen Alwan will discuss the social behaviour of the pandemic and how circumstances outside our control impact responses. How we can improve our health through dietary decision, and the role of non-medical interventions.

A response to COVID-19 requires holistic consideration. The panel will consider the threat of further zoonotic diseases, the role of civil society, and non-medical interventions such as social distancing. To understand what role broader community plays in public health?

The first half will be a discussion, and the second segment will offer the audience the opportunity to ask questions.
