Uncontrolled Spread – A Conversation With Former FDA Commissioner Dr. Scott Gottlieb

The U.S. has always been on the forefront of healthcare innovation and development, but COVID-19 created a public health crisis that threatened our economy and society to the core. What lessons can we take away from the government’s response and how can we better address public health issues in the future? This year, Adam Abramowitz, Managing Director and Co-Head of the Healthcare Group, will moderate a stimulating interview with keynote speaker, Dr. Scott Gottlieb, former Commissioner of the FDA. The discussion will explore a detailed insider’s view of the crisis and what went right… and wrong. A highly accomplished public health expert and business leader, Dr. Gottlieb is also the author of the New York Times best selling book, “Uncontrolled Spread: Why COVID-19 Crushed Us and How We Can Defeat the Next Pandemic”.
