Annual Healthcare Forum:  Decision Making During a Crisis (The Pandemic)

All organizations have felt the effects of COVID-19 and have needed to make critical decisions during this unprecedented time. Nowhere else have the decisions been as critical as in the healthcare sector. Join us for this free Zoom webinar to hear rapid-fire style insights from healthcare leaders across the community, including the Monroe County Department of Public Health, Rochester Regional Health, UR Medicine, and others who will share how they addressed key decisions related to the pandemic.

This virtual event will bring value to all sectors, not only healthcare. Our panelists will share insights into decision making challenges and how they have learned to adapt and flex to the ever-evolving pandemic.
