"The Covid-19 Pandemic in the United States" (Jan 2021)

January 07, 2021

By Historic Saranac Lake

Dr. Tony Holtzman will discuss the nation's response to the Covid-19 pandemic in an online presentation offered free of charge to members of Historic Saranac Lake and those interested in joining HSL. 

Dr. Holtzman will summarize his research into how Emergency Use Authorizations have shaped testing and vaccine development, the relative failure of contact tracing, and the outlook for the vaccines. Dr. Holtzman has considered these topics in a commentary that the editors of the International Journal for Equity in Health invited him to submit (in press).  

Dr. Holtzman draws on his experience as a physician and scientist at Johns Hopkins where he is now Emeritus Professor of Pediatrics. When on the active faculty he held joint appointments in the Departments of Epidemiology and Health Policy at the Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. He is also a longstanding member of Historic Saranac Lake, and author of several works of historical fiction including the Adirondack Trilogy and The Bethune Murals.  

A link to the Zoom meeting will be sent via email the day before the presentation.
