2021 PCORI Virtual Annual Meeting Plenary Session

(with closing remarks from PCORI Executive Director Nakela L. Cook, MD, MPH)

As the nation continues to grapple with a pandemic of enormous impact and scale, systemic issues surrounding inequity in care related directly to COVID-19 and care in other areas have surfaced with ever greater urgency. A diverse panel of health professionals will describe lessons learned from the pandemic, offer best practices, and share the role of evidence in their COVID-19 response. The panelists will also discuss PCORI’s role in helping to address pandemic challenges through stakeholder-engaged research and how to mitigate future public health crises.
