The virtual event, co-sponsored by Quinnipiac and the town of North Haven, was free and open to the public.
Janelle Chiasera, dean of the School of Health Sciences, moderated the discussion.
“The first part of our community conversation on December 17 was very well attended, which reaffirmed to us the importance of being there to provide sound guidance to our community on one of the most pressing issues facing our country,” Chiasera said of an event for Hamden residents. “We are so honored to have Dr. Reggy Eadie joining us for our second conversation. His insight, guidance and first-hand experience serving on the Governor’s Vaccine Advisory Group will help provide the most up-to-date information for members of our community regarding COVID vaccine distribution within Connecticut.”
The community conversations covered topics such as:
The panel included Quinnipiac’s Lisa Cuchara, Professor of Biomedical Sciences; Maya Doyle, Professor of Social Work; Dr. David Hill, Professor of Medical Sciences, Director of Global Public Health and Senior Medical Adviser for COVID-19; Jeffrey Mital, Associate Professor of Biomedical Sciences; Mario Norbis, Professor of Management; Mary Peterson, Clinical Assistant Professor of Nursing and Director of the Accelerated Nursing Program; and John Thomas, Professor of Law.
The event featured a question-and-answer session.
