Upcoming Mid-Year Meetings

“Intersecting pandemics: COVID-19 + health disparities”

2022 – Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

March 4, 2022

The past few years have been unprecedented for many epidemiologists and biostatisticians. The COVID-19 pandemic revealed longstanding deficiencies in the public health system, especially in the U.S., and exacerbated pre-existing health disparities. In the 2022 SER mid-year meeting, we will focus on the experiences of applied epidemiologists as well as notable research projects undertaken in the past year related to the pandemic, health disparities, or their intersection. Several talks will center on Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, as a prototypical urban location to highlight the local response to both pandemics.

Conference Co-Chairs

Neal D. Goldstein, PhD, MBI is Assistant Research Professor of Epidemiology at the Drexel University Dornsife School of Public Health. [wpex]With a background in biomedical informatics, he focuses on computational approaches in complex data settings, especially electronic health records and disease surveillance, to understand infectious disease transmission among vulnerable populations. This has been demonstrated through his work in COVID-19, HIV, healthcare associated infections, and vaccination and vaccine-preventable diseases.[/wpex]
