Israel is considered to be savvy in fighting enemies. Visible, human enemies. The Coronavirus is not that kind of enemy. So far, Israel has been quite successful at stopping this new enemy by using its acquired knowledge in technology, life science, and medicine. Israel reacted early and aggressively. The effects of this strategy on Israel's economy, health system and democracy remain to be seen. This is an informal inside look at Israel's fight against the Coronavirus, a chance to discuss its initial successes and mistakes, and some of the lessons we can learn as the virus continues to spread in the US, Israel, and beyond.

The event will be moderated by Dr. Michael Fine, former RI Director of Health February 2011 to March 2015. Dr. Fine led a Rhode Island delegation to Israel on health care and life science in 2013.
