CEHC and SPH Deans Partner to Host Virtual Town Halls on COVID-19

CEHC/SPH virtual town halls will run on Monday nights at 7 p.m.

ALBANY, N.Y. (March 27, 2020) – The campus community is invited to join College of Emergency Preparedness, Homeland Security and Cybersecurity (CEHC) Dean Bob Griffin and School of Public Health (SPH) Dean David Holtgrave for a series of virtual town hall discussions that will provide the latest information and expertise on COVID-19.

The virtual town halls will run on Monday nights from 7 to 8 p.m. through May 4.

CEHC and SPH hosted their first virtual town hall last Monday, following the live gathering of hundreds of students, faculty and staff in the Campus Ballroom earlier this month for a University-led discussion titled “The Emerging Global Epidemic of Novel Coronavirus: What Do We Think? What Do We Know?” You can watch last week’s town hall here.

Faculty in CEHC, SPH and the School of Social Welfare will also offer their COVID-19 expertise, along with Griffin and Holtgrave, during the virtual discussions.
