Conversation with Alison Buttenheim, PhD, MBA, Susan Ellenberg, PhD, Michael Levy, PhD, and Richard Prisinzano, PhD

12:00p.m. – 1:00p.m. ET March 27, 2020 Virtual Event

Read event recap here.

This virtual panel discussion focused on what lies ahead, now that we have implemented dramatic social distancing measures in response to COVID-19. How long do we need to continue this way? How will we know when we can gradually lift measures that have put our economy in a stranglehold? Do we need to be prepared for cycles of social distancing, and if so, how will that affect the health and financial well-being of American families? Public health and economic experts discussed what is likely to happen next, in this unprecedented upheaval of our social order.
