7:00 a.m. (EST)

The public health response to the COVID-19 pandemic in the U.S. has differed considerably from the approaches taken in China. Now that vaccines are becoming available, the approaches each country is taking to vaccination policies also seem to differ. Please join us for a conversation among trusted partners at UM and in China on the approaches that are being planned in the respective countries.

UMMS Senior Associate Dean for Education and Global Initiatives Joseph C. Kolars will moderate the discussion, featuring Hai Fang, from Peking University Health Science Center, and Michigan Medicine' Sandro Cinti.

A Professor at the China Center for Health Development Studies, Dr. Fang, PhD, is a renowned health economist. His research areas include health economic evaluation, vaccine economics, and health policy.

A leading expert on HIV clinical research as well as emerging infectious diseases, Dr. Cinti, MD, is a co-chair of the multidisciplinary task force responsible for devising and overseeing Michigan Medicine’s vaccination strategy.
