Information

A Conversation with Dr. Michael Osterholm and Jane Sarasohn-Kahn In 2017 when Dr. Michael Osterholm published his book, The Deadliest Enemy, he cautioned that the world was utterly unprepared for the next pandemic. Despite clear warnings, the unthinkable did become the inevitable. One year into the COVID-19 global pandemic, we are still grappling with mask shortages and public safety messaging and now challenged with the distribution of the COVID-19 vaccine. Joined by health economist Jane Sarasohn-Kahn, Dr. Osterholm will speak to the SXSW community about what is next in the fight against COVID-19. From the immediate concerns around new variants to the "collateral damage" we face from this pandemic, Dr. Osterholm and Ms. Sarasohn-Kahn will share insights to help navigate public health in 2021 and beyond. #W2OSXSW
