One of the many remarkable aspects of the times we are living through is the frequent discussion in the press and among the public of basic epidemiologic concepts that are usually relegated to abstract discussions in public health courses.
Perhaps the greatest hope is that these discussions will ultimately reinforce the fact that public health is par excellence a government responsibility critical to the health of all of us.

Our School is actively engaged in many activities including getting information out through our webinar series, supporting the health department, participating in national and global discussions about the pandemic, analyzing data to characterize how the pandemic is evolving and who it is affecting, and advocating for the core public health and equity-oriented approach.
These are hard times for all of us, for students, faculty, research teams and staff. We should all take care of ourselves and seek balance. But we are still moving forward, and we have a lot to learn, and a lot to think about and a lot to do. Our focus and expertise are necessary today like never before.
