ASPPH Presents Webinar: Innovative Screening Methods for COVID-19

As the pandemic has evolved, so has our knowledge about COVID-19. With our expanded understanding, we have improved our ability to screen for the disease. Join us to learn about four innovative screening methods being employed at educational settings around the country. Our panel of experts will talk about how these novel methods came about, how they are being instituted in their unique ways, and how they might be deployed in additional settings. Attendees will have the chance to ask any questions they have about COVID-19 screening methods.
