3:30 - 5:30 pm EST / 2:30 - 4:30 pm CST / 1:30 - 3:30 pm MDT / 12:30 - 2:30 pm PST

Speaker Gary Salvucci will discuss the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on healthcare through the lens of the experience of Children's Hospital Colorado.

Like every organization, Children's had to almost instantly change our business practices:  new ways to work, new work locations, and new work tasks.  All of these are strong business continuity challenges, but especially so when the organization is striving to meet two imperatives during a time of heightened risk:
•    Provide the best quality of care to the sickest of children
•    Protect our patients and caregivers from the most virulent disease in many generations

Registration is limited to 100 people.

“I think we should set our expectations low. I really think we’re most likely to have several vaccines, and that they will lower disease severity and prevent some infections. It doesn’t have to be 100% effective to have enormous value for the world.”
