The Light at the End of the Pandemic Tunnel

Webinar Previously Held

February 23rd & 24th, 2021

It's been a year since the pandemic forever changed our lives. Thankfully, we now have a number of effective vaccines being distributed, and we're clearly approaching the light at the end of the tunnel. But what exactly does that light look like? How soon will the world get back to 'normal' life? And what will 'normal' look like for 2021 and beyond?

In this webinar, Dr. Alan Hedge, world–renowned ergonomist and indoor air quality expert, returns to provide a deep dive into the current COVID–19 virus, the different types of vaccines worldwide and how they work, the impact they will have short and long term, and emerging COVID–19 therapies. He'll also share insight around how COVID–19 mutates and implications of the variants on vaccines and herd immunity. Following the 45 minute presentation, there will be a live Q&A.
