Muskie School of Public Service

Fall webinar series on the Covid-19 pandemic

The University of Southern Maine’s Muskie School of Public Service and the Maine Center invite you to come learn alongside students in a webinar series about the Covid-19 pandemic.

This webinar series will help you gain a stronger understanding of the Covid-19 pandemic, its local and global impact, and recovery from it. The series consists of a series of lectures delivered by University of Maine System faculty experts and other guests in the fields of public health, policy, law, social work, and business. Faculty collaborators include specialists from the Muskie School, University of Maine School of Law, the School of Social Work, the University of Southern Maine and UM Business Schools. Each lecturer will present an aspect of the Covid-19 pandemic through their disciplinary lens, highlighting how we understand, track, mitigate, and recover from its impacts.

These lectures are being presented as part of a fall semester course at the University of Southern Maine.  We also welcome four featured guests, Dr. Nirav Shah, Director of Maine CDC, Dr. Dora Mills, Chief Health Improvement Officer of MaineHealth, Amanda Rector, State Economist for Maine, and Jennifer Hutchins, Executive Director of Maine Association of Nonprofits.

CEUs are available for a fee and require attendance at 10 of the 11 webinars. See here for a full schedule of lectures and register in advance for this free webinar series. The series starts on September 3, from 5:00 – 6:00 p.m. and extends each Thursday through November 19, 2020.
