Infectious Disease Experts to Lead Community Discussion at TEDxCharleston Virtual Event

There is still much uncertainty about coronavirus’ growing impact in our community. Have we reached our peak? What is the state of a vaccine? Is a second wave coming? What does the future hold for school, work, travel and public gatherings?

To help provide some clarity, TEDxCharleston will present a free virtual event, Pandemic in the Lowcountry – What Lies Ahead?, hosted by award winning Post and Courier journalist, Tony Bartelme and two distinguished experts on infectious disease, Michael Schmidt and Satish Nadig. This interactive discussion will present timely information and insights into where we stand and what we can expect as a community as the COVID-19 pandemic continues to evolve. The entire Charleston community is encouraged to join the discussion on Tuesday, June 30th at 6:30 pm. This event is free and open to the public.
