President Daniels writes to All Alumni

Dear alumni and friends,

The outbreak of the new coronavirus (2019-nCoV), which originated in Wuhan, Hubei Province, China, is spreading globally, and has now been declared a public health emergency by the World Health Organization and the US government, which has led to people’s doubts and the attention from our community. Clinicians and researchers at Johns Hopkins University, who specialize in global public health, infectious diseases, and emergency preparedness, have always been working on increasing awareness of the virus, notifying the public, and briefing decision makers to guide the response. They are at the forefront of the international response while caring and saving lives.

At 11:30 am on February 5 (Wednesday), a team of these experts will bring their knowledge directly to you. The Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health will host a 30-minute webinar, which will invite some of the best talents to solve global health problems.
