A Dialogue About the Public Health, Scientific, and Clinical Aspects of the Pandemic

The COVID-19 pandemic has created an urgent need for reliable scientific information. Our understanding of SARS-CoV-2 and COVID-19 disease changes almost daily. Unfortunately, there are also misunderstandings, miscommunications, and controversies. In response, the IAS−USA has created a program that will bring together leading experts to discuss the latest science regarding COVID-19 and what the data and research are telling us about the basic science, public health, and clinical aspects of the disease and the consequences of the pandemic. The topics of the Dialogues expand outside of COVID-19 with the latest emergence and reemergence of urgent virus outbreaks, including monkeypox, polio, and flu. The Dialogue series is intended for healthcare clinicians and researchers, including infectious disease and HIV specialists.

Experts will discuss current issues and will answer audience questions. The conversations will be available on-demand after broadcast on the IAS−USA website, with the warning that the shelf life of COVID-19 information is short. What we know today may well be different from what we know tomorrow.
