Dr. Julius Wilder

The goal of the session is to consider how the issue of mistrust of the medical care system helps to provide the context for misinformation to thrive, and to look inward at how we might better earn the trust of patients, faculty, students, staff and community members.

The keynote will feature Dr. Julius Wilder, a liver transplant physician who also has a Ph.D. in Sociology. He will bring us the up-to-date information on the health effects of COVID-19, given how much focus there is on mortality.

The two panel sessions, after the keynote, will be a discussion with community panelists.
