The Global Interdependence Center – Solve Long Covid Initiative Program Series: Session II

The Global Interdependence Center, in partnership with the Solve Long Covid Initiative, is conducting a year-long webinar and conference series exploring the pandemic’s long-term healthcare, policy, and economic impact, specifically the implications of long haul COVID or long COVID.

About the David R. Kotok Global Healthcare Series

GIC launched the David R. Kotok Global Healthcare Series in 2020; a virtual program series focused on the roles health and healthcare policy play in the interdependent global community.  As a part of the series, the GIC has launched the “Analyzing Pandemics: Economic and Policy Impacts” executive briefings to explore the 100-year global pandemic event. Past briefings focused on the disease and the cure, COVID-19’s impact on food supply chains, artificial intelligence, climate change, and higher education.

In 2021, David Kotok and the Solve Long COVID Initiative offered a new gift to the GIC for funding, sponsorship, and logistical support for the Long COVID Program Series. The series serves as a neutral forum to elevate, vet, and share information about changing interdependencies caused by Long COVID’s impact on medical research, health care policy, fiscal policy, monetary policy, finance, trade, politics, and culture.
