Event Detail

The Global Interdependence Center – Solve Long Covid Initiative Program Series: Session V: Long Covid in the Media

The fifth installment of the GIC Solve Long Covid Initiative Program Series will explore the impact and coverage of Long COVID in the media. Join us virtually on Tuesday, November 29, 2022 with speakers, Cynthia Adinig, ME/CFS and Long Covid patient advocate and Board Member of Solve M.E., Sandhya Kambhampati, data reporter on the Los Angeles Times Data Desk, author Meghan O’Rourke, and Fiona Lowenstein, Founder of Body Politic.

The Global Interdependence Center, in partnership with the Solve Long Covid Initiative (SLCI), is continuing 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.

Throughout the year, GIC and SLCI will bring together world-class immunologists, medical experts, policymakers, and economists to explore critical insights into defining, diagnosing, optimizing treatments, and healthcare policies for long COVID and analyzing its impact on U.S. and global labor markets.

 


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.
