Covid-19 Course For Students

Given the amount of misinformation out there and the impact of COVID-19 on our students lives and therefore their potential interest in the topic, we have developed a 1-credit ‘town hall’ style course for this fall on COVID-19 (UN 3990 COVID-10 Impact & Response). The course is remote, offered on Thursday evenings. Each week 2-4 guests will give a short talk on related topics and then we will have a moderated Q&A period. The topics will cover diverse aspects of the virus and the impacts on our communities and populations. Speakers will include faculty, public health professionals, community experts, and local clinicians.
