Register now for WACA’s KNOW NOW conference call Thursday, March 26, 2020, at 1:00-1:30 pm CT, featuring Dr. Jonathan Quick, Senior Fellow at Management Services for Health. Dr. Quick will be in conversation with WorldBoston President and CEO Mary Yntema.

In January 2018, Dr. Quick spoke at WorldBoston’s Great Decisions series on the topic of “Global Health: Progress and Challenges,” having recently published his book The End of Epidemics: The Looming Threat to Humanity and How to Stop It. As the book says, “Somewhere in nature, a killer virus is boiling up in the bloodstream of a bird, bat, monkey, or pig, preparing to jump to a human being. This not-yet-detected germ has the potential to wipe out millions of lives over a matter of weeks or months.” Join Dr. Quick and Mary Yntema to discuss what has changed since his Great Decisions talk, how effective local and global efforts have been in combating COVID-19, and what we can expect in the coming weeks and months.

KNOW NOW conference calls feature global thought leaders hosted by WACA, as well as local authorities in government, business, academia and cultural fields who are identified and moderated by local Councils.
