A virtual fireside chat with Anthony Fauci will launch the Johns Hopkins University’s Health Policy Forum, a new quarterly series of discussions providing a platform for JHU students, faculty, staff, and alumni to engage in dialogues with Washington leaders around interdisciplinary health policy issues.

JHU President Ronald J. Daniels and Ellen MacKenzie, dean of the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, will moderate the discussion with Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, who will discuss the COVID-19 pandemic and reflect on his nearly 40-year career as a leader in public health policy.

The virtual event will be broadcast on the Johns Hopkins University Coronavirus Resource Center, a continuously updated source of COVID-19 data and expert guidance. The site is led by a cross-disciplinary team across Johns Hopkins who aggregate and analyze the best data available on COVID-19—including cases, testing and contact tracing—to help the public, policymakers and healthcare professionals worldwide respond to the pandemic.

Pre-registration required here.

The series is jointly sponsored by the Schools of Medicine, Nursing, and Public Health, and the Carey Business School. The first installment of the Health Policy Forum will be hosted by the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, with hosting of subsequent events rotating among the sponsoring schools. The forum is designed to bring together Johns Hopkins faculty, students and operational experts with policy makers to explore the development and implementation of health policy interventions.
