Tough Choices: Navigating COVID-19 Risk (w/ Dr. Caroline Buckee‪)‬ Get Real Health with Dr. Chana Davis

    • Medicine

Caroline Buckee, PhD, an epidemiologist at the Harvard TH Chan School of Public Health, talks about navigating risk in the midst of a pandemic.


We are all asking the same questions: Is it worth the risk? What can I do to mitigate risk? What will happen if I get COVID? Whether you're grappling with back-to-school, birthday parties, haircuts, fitness classes, or grocery shopping, science can help you make informed choices.


Dr. Buckee shares science-based insights on COVID-19 transmission, severity, immunity, and the factors that will shape the future of the pandemic. She also reflects on the science of science - how the COVID pandemic has provided a rare glimpse of the dynamic nature of science, and how we, and our COVID models, are still learning.


Dr. Caroline Buckee is an Associate Professor of Epidemiology and Associate Director of the Centre for Communicable Disease Dynamics at Harvard's School of Public Health. Learn more about Dr. Buckee.
