Event description
A special webinar series on the COVID-19 pandemic that pulls together perspectives from public health, policy, law, and business.

About this Event

Solving complex challenges like a pandemic requires deep understanding and broad perspectives. USM's Muskie School of Public Service and the University of Maine Graduate and Professional Center invite you to come learn alongside students in a new "short course" and webinar series about the COVID-19 pandemic.


This free webinar series will help you gain a stronger understanding of the COVID-19 pandemic, its local and global impact, and recovery from it. The series is comprised of a series of lectures delivered by University of Maine System experts in the fields of public health, policy, law, and business. Each faculty member will present an aspect of the COVID-19 pandemic through their disciplinary lens, highlighting how we understand, track, mitigate, and recover from its impacts.

Course modules will cover:

  • Epidemiology of COVID-19
  • Public health systems and health policy
  • Crisis management best practices
  • Global/local disparities in impacts and outcomes
  • Privacy rights and freedoms; federalism
  • Impacts on the international and U.S. economy and workforce

Please visit the series webpage to view the full schedule and details about each webinar.

We are pleased to welcome two very special guests - Dr. Nirav Shah, Director of the Maine Center for Disease Control and Prevention, and Dr. Dora Mills, Chief Health Improvement Officer at Maine Health - to kick off the series on June 1.


This series will start on June 1 and conclude on June 11. Each lecture will run from 5-6pm and recordings will be made available. You can join any and all of the lectures between June 1 and June 11.
