Speakers

Abstract
Date:  April 19, 2022
Time: 10:00am (PDT),  1:00pm (EDT), 7:00pm (CEST)
 
Once upon a time, there were three public health labs. These labs were busy serving their states when, out of nowhere, a novel coronavirus emerged. Armed only with their existing staff, wits, energy, and knowledge, they sought to navigate a perilous landscape of ever-changing political and public requests while fighting the novel coronavirus, SARS-CoV-2. In this talk, three speakers will share their perspectives on the public health COVID-19 response to testing demand. Speaking from their state-specific perspectives, they will address the needs and challenges they faced in the realms of molecular, serology, and point-of-care testing. To conclude, speakers will highlight lessons learned as well as their hope that implementation of their recommendations will help with future pandemic preparedness.
