Findings Spring 2020
In This Issue. This year’s coronavirus outbreak has reminded us that, in a matter of weeks, a single pathogen can affect the public’s health in nearly every corner of the world. It has reminded us that our behavior affects our neighbor’s health. And it has reminded us once again of the deep health disparities that exist across our communities.
Our health is interconnected, and a pandemic of this magnitude provides harrowing examples of that truth. But the response of human communities provides hopeful examples. Together, we have changed how we interact with each other and the world, cared for the sick, reimagined our daily lives, and rapidly researched and developed new science—all to protect one another’s health and safety. Before us lie countless opportunities to lead, serve, and innovate.
