Today: The Covid-19 pandemic has thrust the World Health Organization (WHO) into the limelight, for better and for worse. While some of the Trump administration’s criticism of the organization is unfair, the response to the early stages of the pandemic left many experts wanting more from the WHO. What is the WHO’s role in responding to international pandemics? What can be done to improve the WHO’s response to future global health crises?

This class series is following the Library's limited-capacity procedure, in line with the CDC's social distancing guidelines. To accommodate this, we will only have 12 seats available and already placed in the room; there will be no additions. Each person attending must wear a mask throughout the entire class. Every individual must enroll by signing up with Joan Flewelling (see contact info); every sign-up guarantees 1 seat per person, so if you wish to have friends or a significant-other join you, please sign him/her up individually under their name. Approx. 30 minutes before the event, a Library Staff member will greet you at the door and check your name off the sign-up sheet. There will be no exceptions.
