COVID-19 Tele-Town Hall With the Leaders of Michigan State University, University of Michigan and Wayne State University

Thu, Apr 23, 2020 2:15 PM – 3:00 PM EDT

Moderator: Sandy K. Baruah, President and CEO, Detroit Regional Chamber

Guest Speakers:

Samuel L. Stanley, Jr., M.D., President, Michigan State University
Mark S. Schlissel, President, University of Michigan
M. Roy Wilson, President, Wayne State University

Since the COVID-19 pandemic began, the three universities that comprise Michigan’s University Research Corridor (URC) have launched themselves into finding a vaccine, a treatment for the virus, and recommendations for “flattening the curve.” They’re also moving new health care professionals into the field, setting up hotlines to help health care workers, perfecting a process to sanitize used masks, and providing advice for managing mental health, food safety, and the economy.

Participants will have the opportunity to submit questions to Baruah during the discussion.
