The COVID-19 pandemic revealed huge flaws in global health security. And the risk of another such outbreak is very real. Can we predict—and then prevent—the next pandemic? In this panel, we’ll hear from leading scientists about the new tools they’re deploying to track and respond to emerging pathogens. Moderated by Betsy McKay, global health reporter for The Wall Street Journal, this event will explore lessons learned from COVID-19—and examine how prepared we are for the next big public health threat. 

CrisisReady Co-Director Satchit Balsari will join Alexandria Boehm, Marc Lipsitch, and Sikhulile Moyo to discuss how novel data can play a critical role in pandemic preparedness and response. Dr. Balsari will share recent work from CrisisReady that highlight the utility of these data in emergency and public health contexts.
