As the distribution of COVID-19 vaccines begins in the U.S., and the virus is as dangerous and deadly as ever, many of us have questions.  Join our distinguished panel of subject matter experts for an engaging discussion on the science, safety, approval processes, ethics, policy issues, and personal decision-making on the COVID-19 vaccine.

The panel will include:

  • Dr. Mark Navin, Professor and Chair of Philosophy, Oakland University
  • Dr. Seema Yasmin, Clinical Assistant Professor of Medicine - Primary Care and Population Health at Stanford University
  • Dr. Sean Valles, Director and Associate Professor, Center for Ethics and Humanities in the Life Sciences, Michigan State University
  • Dr. Trish Perl, Chief of the Division of Infectious Diseases, UT Southwestern Medical Center
  • Dr. Matthew Brown, Panel Moderator, Professor and Director of Center for Values in Medicine, Science, and Technology & School of Arts and Humanities, The University of Texas at Dallas
