As we approach one year in COVID-19 lockdown, this event features a panel of York faculty members who have been recognized with the Minister of Colleges and Universities Awards of Excellence for their commitment to guiding Ontario through the pandemic. Join us on March 3 for a panel discussion with esteemed York faculty:
• Dr. Dasantila Golemi-Kotra expertly guided Canadians looking to get through the pandemic safely, offering advice on how to effectively clean and sanitize homes and workplaces, correctly use personal protective equipment, and take necessary safety precautions when out in the community.
• Dr. Steven Hoffman engages researchers, implementers, funders and citizens around the world in identifying key areas of focus for research and study to rebuild after the pandemic.
• Dr. Murat Kristal developed an analytics dashboard that gives daily insights into the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic. These predictive numbers support policymakers, healthcare administrators and public health officials as they make evidence-based, informed decisions to stop the spread of COVID-19 and keep people safe.
• Finally, Professor Jianhong Wu is a trailblazer in several renowned national interdisciplinary projects, including the federally funded national infection dynamics modelling project and the geosimulation of disease spread.
