Wesleyan Alumni Panel: Healthcare Crisis: Facing the Many Aspects of the COVID Pandemic – 6/10

Good Afternoon Everyone!

I hope all of you and your families are doing well. I am writing to share information about an alumni panel event regarding the current healthcare crisis being hosted via Zoom on Wednesday evening (June 10th). Experienced Wesleyan alumni will discuss the wide-ranging impacts the pandemic has had on healthcare delivery, from hospital systems to Telemedicine, to the effects on private practices and ‘non-essential’ care, the impact on at-risk populations managing psychiatric and/or addictive disorders, and the ethical considerations of resources allocations.

The discussion will be moderated by our very own Chief Medical Director, Thomas McLarney, MD, and is open to all members of the Wesleyan community.

If you’re interested in joining us, register here. Feel free to share this event via email or Facebook with your students and colleagues as you see fit.

Take care,
