The University of Toledo will host a public forum featuring health experts to address the latest information on the novel coronavirus, now known as COVID-19.
The forum, “Protecting Health: Addressing the Spread of the Novel Coronavirus,” will be held from 3 to 4:30 p.m. Wednesday, March 4, in Collier Building Room 1000A on the UToledo Health Science Campus.
A panel of UToledo faculty experts will address the causes of the disease and how it spreads, ways to avoid exposure to infectious diseases, and efforts underway to respond to the outbreak. The discussion will be moderated by Dr. Joan Duggan, an infectious disease specialist and professor of medicine in the UToledo College of Medicine and Life Sciences.
UToledo experts on the panel will include:
• Dr. Jennifer Hanrahan, associate professor of medicine and chief of the Division of Infectious Disease;
• Dr. Jason Huntley, associate professor of medical microbiology and immunology;
• Dr. Linda Lewandowski, professor and dean of the College of Nursing; and
• Dr. R. Travis Taylor, assistant professor of medical microbiology and immunology.
The panel discussion will be followed by a question-and-answer session with guests in attendance.
The free event is sponsored by the UToledo Office of Research and Sponsored Programs.
For those unable to make it to campus, the forum will be streamed live at utoledo.edu/video.
