The George and Barbara Bush Foundation will host a virtual event, “Looking Forward: Avoiding a Vaccine Cold War,” featuring a panel that includes Dr. Soumya Swaminathan, Chief Scientist at the World Health Organization (WHO).  The event takes place Thursday, September 17, at 1:30pm EST and will unpack the complex issues of vaccine development, production, and equity during a pandemic.

The hour-long program, which will be shown on the Foundation’s website georgeandbarbarabush.org/, will feature moderator Dr. Martin J. Murphy, Jr., the Bushes’ close friend and CEO of the Roundtable on Cancer-China, in conversation with three of the top minds grappling with the pandemic and vaccines at the global level:

  • Sir Jeremy Farrar, Director, The Wellcome Trust
  • Dr. Richard Hatchett, CEO, The Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations (CEPI)
  • Dr. Soumya Swaminathan, Chief Scientist, The World Health Organization

More information and full panel lineup is included below and in the official invitation. Please note there is no registration page, so you can simply visit the Foundation’s website, www.georgeandbarbarabush.org or YouTube Channel, at the designated time.
