The smartest people on earth have been studying, sequencing, analyzing, theorizing, and data-crunching the COVID-19 pandemic for two years now. (To be fair, everyone else has been thinking about quite a lot, too.) On January 19th, ActivePure partnered with the Employee Health Innovation Round Table to bring six of those experts together in one (virtual) room:
The event was moderated by Ambassador James K. Glassman, former Under Secretary of State for Public Diplomacy and head of a Washington-based advisory firm on public policy. Ambassador Glassman is also an accomplished journalist in both television and print.
The discussion was attended by over 600 corporate representatives, legistors, educators, city government officials, and healthcare professionals. The result was the global forum 'Two Years of a Global Pandemic: Lessons Learned and Plans for the Future.'
Conversation during the forum focused on what employers and policy makers can do moving forward as COVID-19 transitions from a pandemic to an endemic virus (i.e. from a crisis to a part of everyday life).
Even though ActivePure hosted it, we found the information riveting, and we'd really like to share it with you. Some key takeaways include:
