Weitzman Institute Partnerships Through COVID-19

Weitzman Institute has partnered with other key organizations in an effort to share best practices and strategies with health centers and front line health care providers during the COVID-19 pandemic.

All of the presenters were excellent. The entire session was exceptionally well-organized, there were no apparent technical issues, and I gleaned a large amount of information. This was genuinely the best web-based informational session that I have attended since the COVID-19 crisis began.”
