The Best of Times, The Worst of Times: A Reflection on the State of International Healthcare During COVID
Douglas Jackson, PhD, JD, President/CEO of Project C.U.R.E
Please join us January 27th at 11:30 am MST for a presentation with Douglas Jackson PhD, JD, President/CEO of Project C.U.R.E., as he presents a reflection on the state of International Healthcare during COVID.
COVID has brought about some amazing changes in the healthcare sector, from revolutionary vaccines to new ways of practicing medicine. At the same time, the impact on entire populations has been dramatically tragic. One nonprofit – Project C.U.R.E. – made an unprecedented pivot to serve domestic first responders in the United States, and is now addressing COVID in places like India, South America and Africa which have been the source of Delta, Epsilon and Omicron variants.
- The COVID Pandemic has created both shock and opportunities to healthcare organizations. The bold and innovative will seek, discover and execute on the opportunities.
- The COVID Pandemic has introduced considerations and questions that will need answered long after the cycle of the virus. Public health policy, supply chain design and technological innovations are three of a host of topics beyond the pandemic.
- The COVID Pandemic is an international crisis and must be addressed along with the healthcare infrastructure concerns of poverty, global interdependence, disease migration and the Sustainable Development Goals.
