Epidemiology Podcast Crossover
In honor of the Society for Epidemiologic Research 2020 Meeting, the hosts of four epidemiology podcasts came together to record the first ever “crossover event” to talk about their experiences recording our shows and what podcasting can bring to the table for the field of epidemiology. Join the hosts of Epidemiology Counts (Bryan James), SERiousEPi (Matt Fox, Hailey Banack), Casual Inference (Lucy D’Agostino McGowan), and Shiny Epi People (Lisa Bodnar) as they engage in a fun and informative (we hope!) conversation of the burgeoning field of epidemiology podcasting, emceed by Geetika Kalloo. The audio podcast will be released on some of our pod feeds, and the video recording will be available to watch on the SER website.

Critical Topics in COVID-19 Epidemiology
Saskia Popescu, Beth S. Linas, Eric Lofgren, and Jaime Slaughter-Acey We have all been affected by the Covid-19 pandemic, and as epidemiologists, this disease, prevention efforts, and downstream effects of social distancing policies prompt us to assess the pandemic and its effects as researchers. Broadly, we are interested in understanding risk factors for Covid-19 infection and severity, outbreak projections and predictions, prevention or mitigation strategies (pharmaceuticals and policies) and their impact, and public health communication strategies for outbreaks of this magnitude. During this discussion, four expert panelists will respond to questions on these topics and brainstorm new directions for research, with additional time to respond to audience questions.
