What Comes Next? Virus Variants, Vaccine Next Steps, and Preventing Future Pandemics

In this webinar, national leaders discuss what is next in the US response to COVID-19, from the “last mile” of vaccine distribution to what the pandemic could mean for community resilience and global health in the years to come. Please join us as we explore what homeland security, emergency management, public health and security officials need to know now and as they plan for the future.

This webinar is held in partnership with the Association of State and Territorial Health Officials (ASTHO), CHDS Alumni Association, International Association of Emergency Managers (IAEM), Naval Postgraduate School Alumni Association and Foundation, and National Emergency Management Association (NEMA).
