Life Beyond the Pandemic

The opening show in Common Ground’s season, “Life Beyond the Pandemic,” explores what we’ve learned about the pandemic and its profound impact on how we live, think and play. 

The expert panel, led by Dr. Anthony Fauci, discusses how the ongoing crisis is shifting the ground beneath our feet and inevitably leading to permanent changes in political and economic power. 

But since every calamity also is an opportunity, there is a focus on how the country can rebuild to resolve some of its most intractable and longstanding problems.

Panelists include:

  • Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases
  • Dr. Michael Thomas Osterholm, regents professor and director of the Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy at the University of Minnesota
  • Dr. Kavita Patel, nonresident fellow at the Brookings Institution
  • Dr. Anne Rimoin, professor of epidemiology and director of the UCLA Center for Global and Immigrant Health
