Rachel M. Werner Executive Director - Leonard Davis Institute of Health Economics (LDI)
Location: Virtual Event
Penn LDI
Description:

The financial toll of the COVID-19 pandemic on our health care system has been enormous. As hospitals cancelled non-urgent admissions and surgeries, and outpatient clinics and practices deferred elective and preventive visits, expected revenue streams evaporated. Many systems and practices have taken a huge hit to their bottom lines, threatening their financial health and survival. At the same time, the use of telehealth and other innovations grew, sometimes without clear reimbursement mechanisms. Join our panel of CEOs as they discuss the pandemic’s financial impact on hospitals and health systems, primary care practices, and community health centers, and the public and private investment needed in the aftermath of COVID-19.

One of the world's leading experts on the psychology of choice, Sheena Iyengar asks the difficult questions about how and why we choose: is the desire for choice innate or bound by culture?

Amy Pickering Assistant Professor, Civil and Environmental Engineering - Tufts University
Location: ONLINE
Description:

As COVID-19 cases continue to grow rapidly across the globe and no cure is yet identified, prevention is essential to slow the spread. Frequent handwashing to interrupt transmission of the virus is one of the main recommendations from national health agencies, the World Health Organization, and other experts, but following handwashing guidance is not necessarily possible or easy for everyone, particularly in low-income countries.

Individuals living in areas with limited and unreliable access to piped water and lacking access to soap are not able to wash their hands regularly. As many as 40% of the global population lacks access to basic handwashing facilities. Others may not be aware of the correct handwashing steps to follow or they may not realize that handwashing can prevent the spread of infectious disease. These structural and knowledge barriers are compounded by a misunderstanding about susceptibility, communicability, and the potential severity of COVID-19.

What are the most effective ways to promote and increase handwashing in a low-income setting? What are the structural barriers these individuals face in doing so and what options are currently available to help them mitigate these barriers? Is information about handwashing and COVID-19 prevention trusted and being effectively communicated to vulnerable communities?

Please join Innovations for Poverty Action for a webinar titled “Increasing Handwashing Adherence: Lessons from Rigorous Evidence,” which will cover evidence from rigorous research on increasing uptake of handwashing and on addressing the structural barriers people face that prevent them from washing their hands. Amy Pickering (Tufts University) and Robert Dreibelbis (London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine) will present and Rachel Steinacher (IPA) will host and moderate.

The presentations will be followed by a discussion and Q&A, where we will cover how the evidence can inform policy, particularly in the face of the current COVID-19 pandemic.

Prior to COVID-19, the U.S. was in the midst of a different epidemic, with nearly 130 people a day dying of an opioid overdose. Individuals with substance use disorders (SUDs) are particularly vulnerable during the COVID-19 pandemic, and the systems of care upon which they rely have been severely constrained. In response, some regulatory policies have been eased and treatment programs have adapted. Our panel of experts will explore the policy and public health implications of the twin epidemics of COVID-19 and opioids, and examine questions such as: In what ways do the populations most affected by COVID-19 and the opioid crisis overlap? How have social distancing and shelter-in-place policies affected access to care for SUD patients? What challenges does COVID-19 pose to SUD treatment and recovery more generally, and what policy levers can we use to address them?

This virtual seminar is free and open to the public.

Unlikely Stories: Apprehending Climate Change in the Anthropocene
Nikhil Anand

As improbable events increasingly disrupt pretenses of legible, predictable environments, how might we notice, narrate and inhabit the uncertain and vibrant naturecultures of the anthropocene?  Join writer Amitav Ghosh and earth scientist Adam Sobel in a conversation about how unlikely data and stories inform the work that they do.

Beyond the End of the World: Human and Non-Human After the Collapse of ‘Civilization’
Keynote Address by Amitav Ghosh

The idea of the ‘human’, as a unitary species, dates back to the founding years of the very structures of modernity that can now be seen to be hurtling towards collapse. As this process intensifies it may bring about a fundamental reconsideration of modern ideas regarding which entities possess such attributes as agency, speech, reason, and so on. If so what kinds of narratives and knowledge traditions can we turn to for guidance about what might lie ahead? This talk explores some possibilities.

Atheendar Venkataramani Assistant Professor of Medical Ethics and Health Policy - University of Pennsylvania
Location: ONLINE
Description:

As a country, we are facing two unprecedented disasters: a pandemic the likes of which we have not seen in over a century, and projections for an economic downturn and unemployment that will rival the Great Depression. Please join LDI for a virtual seminar with Atheendar Venkataramani, MD, PhD, who will discuss the current economic crisis and its long-term health consequences. What do history and research tell us about what happens to health during an economic recession? How might this time be different, when economic activity has been halted by fears of social interaction rather than slowed by typical economic forces? And how will this affect low-income people, who were already experiencing worsening mortality and rising “deaths of despair”? Rachel Werner, LDI Executive Director, will moderate the discussion and take questions from the audience.

This virtual seminar is open to the public.

Dennis Culhane Dana and Andrew Stone Professor of Social Policy, School of Social Policy & Practice - University of Pennsylvania
Location: ONLINE
Description:

While COVID-19 affects all communities, the pandemic may have a disparate impact on socioeconomically distressed populations. The health and economic effects on poor and under-resourced areas is likely to be severe and long-lasting. What can we do to meet the needs of vulnerable communities during this crisis? What existing resources can we repurpose, and what new ones are needed to contain the spread of the coronavirus in these areas? During a national movement calling on people to “stay home” and distance socially, what can we do to protect and serve people who are homeless? How can we tap into the sources of strength and resilience in these communities during the coming economic recession? Join us for a virtual seminar featuring three LDI Senior Fellows who have devoted their careers to serving vulnerable communities through research, policy, and practice. We’ll hear about the magnitude of the problems and explore the contours of the solutions.

This virtual seminar is open to the public. Please see instructions on how to join below.
