Coronavirus Conversations: Coronavirus and the Military

via Zoom - Monday, April 20 - 12:30 p.m. - 1:30 p.m.

Recent reports have highlighted the unique challenges the pandemic poses for our nation’s military. News of infections on U.S. Navy ships and of a VA Healthcare System stretched even thinner raise concern for those in service to our country. How are military leaders protecting and supporting military personnel, veterans, and their families while preserving the readiness of the United States Armed Forces? How do their decisions differ from those made for civilians?

Join Duke Science & Society and our expert panel as we discuss the effect of the current global public health crisis on military readiness, veterans healthcare, and military families.

Moderator & Panelists:
Former Chairman of The Joint Chiefs of Staff General Martin Dempsey
Major General Charles Dunlap Jr
Deputy Director, Duke Science & Society Buz Waitzkin
