About the webinar series:

Back by popular demand, this free webinar series will help you gain a stronger understanding of the COVID-19 pandemic, its local and global impact, and recovery from it. This is an updated and extended version of the webinar series we offered in June 2020.


The series consists of a series of lectures delivered by 18 experts in the fields of public health, policy, law, and business. Each speaker will present an aspect of the COVID-19 pandemic through their disciplinary lens, highlighting how we understand, track, mitigate, and recover from its impacts. These lectures are being presented as part of a fall course at the University of Southern Maine’s Muskie School of Public Service. You can participate in any and all of the webinars – whatever your schedule allows.


We are pleased to welcome special guests Dr. Nirav Shah, Director of the Maine CDC, and Dr. Dora Mills, Chief Health Improvement Officer at MaineHealth, to kick off the series on September 3. Amanda Rector, State Economist, and Jennifer Hutchins, Executive Director of the Maine Association of Nonprofits, will join us later in the series.
