Legacy of Covid events

Reading time: 2 minutes
The Global Health Governance Programme, based in the Usher Institute, has organised two events with University experts that will examine the legacy of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Sustainability and Covid Workshop

This event will be held on Thursday 23 June from 10am to 3pm at the Playfair Library. Covid-19 has been the unexpected buzzword of this decade so far but sustainability is another such word that we’ve begun to see used more frequently. This workshop will explore the intersection between these two concepts, building on work conducted by Joey Brooke, a sixth-year medical student at the University and Research Assistant for the Greenhouse Gas Protocol (GHGP). This event will finish with a networking event and wine reception. Tickets are still available for this event.

Covid Research Workshop

This event will run on Wednesday 22 June from 10am to 3pm at the Playfair Library in Old College. There will be interactive research talks on long Covid, community health workers, and antimicrobial resistance, followed by a panel discussion after lunch reflecting on the lessons learnt from the pandemic. University experts Professor Liz Grant, Assistant Principal (Global Health) and Director of the Global Health Academy, Professor Kenneth Baillie, Personal Chair of Experimental Medicine in the Usher Institute, and Professor Devi Sridhar, Professor of Global Public Health also in the Usher Institute, will be part of the panel. A waitlist is currently in place for this event.

Numbers are limited so please only book a slot if you can definitely make it. If you book and are unable to make it, please cancel your slot in ample time so someone on the waiting list can attend.
