Guest Livestream will be available, below, at the time of the event.

In this LSA Honors DeRoy Virtual Open Lecture, Dr. Abdul El-Sayed will discuss the COVID-19 pandemic in the context of America’s other epidemics: the pandemic of systemic racism and the epidemic of insecurity. He will dig into America’s broken healthcare system as a lynchpin in the etiology of each of these three pandemics—and how we need to take them on.

The LSA Honors DeRoy Open Lecture is a biannual event made possible by the Helen L. DeRoy Visiting Professorship endowment. This fall, Dr. El-Sayed has led "Wellbeing + Public Policy" (HONORS 493). He's the author of "Healing Politics: A Doctor's Journey into the Heart of Our Political Epidemic" (Abrams Press) and forthcoming book "Medicare for All: A Citizen's Guide" (Oxford University Press, 2021).
