SPH First Fridays: COVID19 & Why Epidemiology Matters

The LSUHSC School of Public Health hosts virtual lectures via Zoom on the first Friday of the month at 3pm.

In June the lecture will be: COVID19 and Why Epidemiology Matters, presented by Susanne Straif-Bourgeois with special guest Megan Sutton.

“On June 5, we’ll introduce you to Dr. Susanne Straif-Bourgeois.  A noted epidemiologist, she has been an often sought guest on television and radio for her take on the COVID 19 crisis.  Dr. Straif-Bourgeois will be speaking about what her experience with the current pandemic has taught her about the importance of epidemiology in general and how that shapes the future of Public Health from here on out.

We’ll also speak with Meagan Sutton, a recent MPH graduate from our school.   Megan has been using her epidemiology background to conduct routine surveillance and will continue to assist with projects in response to the COVID-19 pandemic through the Louisiana Department of Health.”
