The Covid Classroom: What have we learned from the worst pandemic in 100 years?
with Aaron Katz
The U.S. health system has been described as “broken” and “the best in the world.” How well has it responded to the Covid crisis, and what can we learn from this experience? In this three-session course, we will discuss the structure of the U.S. health system and how it operates, and explore – together – its strengths and weaknesses as revealed by the pandemic.
