Perspectives on COVID-19 and Risk - Online Summit, 10th November

A half day online summit aiming to clarify dilemmas in medicine and public perception of COVID-19 risk:
*    Does unemployment create a bigger societal risk to health than COVID-19?
*    Are scientific approaches to individual and societal risk to COVID-19 challengeable?
*    What long-term approach to risk should medical leaders take to the public?
*    Do people understand risk? By decreasing one risk are we increasing another?

Target audience – senior policy leaders within health, government, and industry
