Join us for a virtual conversation with Dr. Celine Gounder on the pandemic, and the intersection of public health with racial and economic equity and justice. She is an infectious disease expert, highly sought after for her guidance on the coronavirus, featured frequently on media outlets such as CNN, MSNBC, CNBC, NPR, The New York Times, and more. Dr. Celine Gounder, who was appointed to President Joe Biden’s Transition COVID-19 Advisory Board in 2020, is chief executive officer, president, and founder of Just Human Productions, a nonprofit multimedia organization. She hosts and produces a pair of podcasts, including American Diagnosis, a podcast on health and social justice, and Epidemic, a podcast about the coronavirus pandemic.
