Any economic crisis can impact our physical and mental health. But what about when that crisis is caused by a global pandemic? Batten Professor Chris Ruhm will join us for the third installment of our expert chat series about the novel coronavirus. In a brief online lecture followed by a question and answer session, Ruhm will discuss how prior research on economic recessions and overall health might shed light on the path ahead, and where that research might lead us astray.


How does one navigate the policy implications of a worldwide epidemic? And what does that look like? Join the Miller Center for a discussion with Batten School Dean Ian Solomon on the policy implications of the coronavirus epidemic.
