Pandemic Resilience: Work and School


Thursday, May 21, 2020, 5:00pm to 6:00pm


Zoom webinar

Meredith Rosenthal, Sharon Block, and Meira Levinson will discuss Pandemic Resilience and Work and Schools in this conversation of our COVID-19 white paper series. The discussion will be moderated by Carmel Shachar. This event is co-sponsored by the Petrie-Flom Center for Health Law Policy, Biotechnology, and Bioethics.

In order to successfully combat the COVID-19 epidemic, we need to thoughtfully mobilize and utilize all resources available. The Edmond J. Safra Center’s COVID-19 Response Initiative, a bipartisan group of experts in economics, public health, technology and ethics from across the country, has released the nation’s first comprehensive operational roadmap for mobilizing and reopening the U.S. economy in the midst of the COVID-19 crisis.

We are exploring this operational roadmap to pandemic resilience in a series of events. We will focus on work and schools in this second discussion on reopening the country.


Meredith Rosenthal, C. Boyden Gray Professor of Health Economics and Policy at the T. H. Chan School of Public Health.

Sharon Block, Executive Director of the Labor and Worklife Program at Harvard Law School.

Meira Levinson, Professor of Education at the Harvard Graduate School of Education.

Moderated by Carmel Shachar, Executive Director of the Petrie-Flom Center for Health Law Policy, Biotechnology, and Bioethics at Harvard Law School.
