Join the UAB School of Public Health, Public Health, and Primary Health Care leaders from Cuba and Alabama for a virtual forum discussing Public Health topics related to the COVID-19 Pandemic. The event will feature six panelists, including three from Alabama and three from Cuba, to discuss the experience in both regions from the perspective of a medical student, a primary care physician, and those at the forefront of communications and social media surrounding COVID-19. This webinar will be moderated by Paul Erwin, Dean of the UAB School of Public Health, and Gail Reed, Executive Editor of MEDICC Review, the only English-language health/medical journal publishing Cuban authors writing about Cuba. Additional partners include the UA College of Community Health Sciences in collaboration with the UA Center for Cuba Collaboration and Scholarship, and the Escuela Nacional de Salud Pública (ENSAP, The National School of Public Health, Cuba).
