The COVID-19 Pandemic | Global Impact and the Road to Recovery

Join us for a timely and engrossing virtual panel event on Wednesday, June 9.

Almost sixteen months into the COVID-19 pandemic, we are seeing reasons for hope at the end of the road. But we are still seeking answers to a range of complex challenges. Given that much of the world is still struggling with vaccine supply, how will we overcome vaccine inequity and ensure that humanity is protected from this and potential future pandemics? And what can we do — both locally and globally — to grapple with the  largest “educational deficit” in modern history since the Second World War? In our altered landscape, what does the future of education look like? 

UCC’s Common Ties Alumni Network presents an expert discussion on local and world recovery efforts. Moderated by the University of Toronto’s Dr. Joseph Wong and featuring the World Health Organization’s Dr. Peter Singer ’78, War Child’s Dr. Samantha Nutt, and global health scholar and community builder Habon Ali, this session will cover topics related to the lasting impact of COVID-19, offering insight into what may be next for Canada and the rest of the world.

The event includes a discussion period, followed by a Q-and-A with the speakers.
