Department of Medicine Grand Rounds
The Final Covid-19 Grand Rounds: What Have We Learned?
Session moderated by Bob Wachter
We launched our Covid Grand Rounds series in March 2020. Since that time, we’ve hosted more than 50 Covid sessions featuring more than 100 local and national leaders, and have had tens of thousands of live viewers and more than 3 million views on YouTube. For this, our last Medical Grand Rounds of this academic year, it seems appropriate to have this serve as our final Covid Grand Rounds. (When we resume UCSF Medical Grand Rounds in September, we’ll cover Covid as we do other important medical topics, as new developments dictate.)
For this session, we’ll bring back three of our favorite experts to discuss what we’ve learned over the past 3.5 years, in areas ranging from vaccines to schools, masks to misinformation, and health equity to health economics.
Carlos del Rio, MD, is professor of Medicine in the Division of Infectious Diseases and interim dean at the Emory University School of Medicine as well as interim chief academic officer at Emory Healthcare. He is currently the president of the 12,000-member Infectious Diseases Society of America, the preeminent professional society for infectious diseases practitioners.
Katelyn Jetelina, MPH, PhD, is an epidemiologist, data scientist, and internationally renowned scientific communicator. Throughout the pandemic she was a senior science advisor to a number of government and non-profit agencies, including the White House and the CDC. She is the publisher of Your Local Epidemiologist — a public health newsletter that “translates” ever-evolving science to the general public — which has been viewed over 300 million times. Katelyn has received numerous national awards for her work, including from the National Academy of Science and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
Mark D. Smith, MD, MBA, is currently clinical professor of Medicine at UCSF, in the Division of HIV, Infectious Diseases & Global Medicine at ZSFG. Previously, he served as co-chair of the Guiding Committee of the Health Care Payment Learning and Action Network and was the founding president and chief executive officer of the California HealthCare Foundation. Mark was elected to the National Academy of Medicine in 2001 and chaired its Committee on the Learning Healthcare System, which produced the widely publicized 2012 report Best Care at Lower Cost. He serves as a director of Teladoc Health, Inc., Phreesia, the Commonwealth Fund, and Jazz Pharmaceuticals. He maintains a clinical practice in HIV at the Positive Health Practice at ZSFG.
