About this Event
The “Being Human” Initiative at the Center for Ideas and Society Presents:
(When) Will This Pandemic End?
Unsettled by the thought that “we‘re all getting Covid“ (NY Times, Dec. 23, 2021)?
Exhausted from the past two years?
Asking yourself when this pandemic will finally be over and what the “new normal” will look like?
Join us at the Center for Ideas and Society for a conversation with David Lo, Senior Associate Dean for Research and Distinguished Professor for Biomedical Sciences at UCR’s School of Medicine, on the future of Covid-19, Omicron, and our life with the virus. This event is a follow up to our Oct 20, 2020 event "Covid-19 Vaccines and the Future of "Normal Life".
Webinar moderated by Jeanette Kohl, co-director, Center for Ideas and Society.
