Please join MSCI for a one-hour webinar on Thursday, May 20, featuring Dr. Mark McClellan. This webinar is Dr. McClellan’s second with MSCI. Our first was an early January discussion about the then-new COVID vaccine rollout. We’re now far into the rollout, and the issues and challenges ahead are very different. This time we’ll have a conversation about what we face in the coming months as the economy reopens and possible future pandemics. How can we build a better infrastructure for health care, therapeutic medications, prevention strategies, protective equipment, and yes, new vaccines? What have we learned from our COVID-19 experiences that can make us stronger, better able to handle these problems in the future?
