Prevention and Mitigation Strategies through the COVID-19 Pandemic – A local public health official’s perspective (Oct. 13, 2021)

Wednesday, October 13, 12:00PM CST – 1:00PM CST

Jefferson County Health Officer Mark Wilson, MD will review and discuss prevention and mitigation strategies employed (or not employed) from the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic until now, and some of the challenges he and the health department faced. To the extent possible, this will be an interactive discussion. The audience will be asked to go back in time and put themselves in the “driver’s seat” local public health officials with the responsibility and authority to take action during various stages of the pandemic.
