Pandemic Faculty Lecture

Co-sponsored by LLARC and Institutional Advancement

Dr. Shannon Hogan, Assistant Professor of STEM 
Manuel Cifuentes, MD, Associate Professor of Public Health Professor 

If you have ever wondered about the structure of a virus, how a virus actually works, or what determines the designation of a virus as a coronavirus (a bad one), then this seminar is for you. Similarly, if you have contemplated how epidemics are detected, followed, and compared between places and time periods, then you won’t want to miss the chance to explore these topics and more with Regis’ faculty experts in the fields of virology and epidemiology. Featuring a mixed-method approach of lecture and group discussion, this seminar will provide a scientific framework to respond to your pressing questions about COVID-19. Dr. Hogan is Regis’ resident virologist who teaches a variety of courses that serve students in both STEM and nursing. With degrees in public health and epidemiology, Professor Cifuentes, MD teaches graduate and undergraduate courses in the School of Health Science’s public health program. Hogan and Cifuentes are both professors of Regis' interdisciplinary COVID-19 pandemic course. 

Please note that this seminar will be offered free of charge, but registration is required.
