The Challenges of Dealing with the COVID- 19 Virus in Marin County

Online Zoom Webinar
November 17, 2020
12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

The COVID -19 virus has impacted all of us in many ways, including our ability to socialize with family and friends, perform our jobs in our regular work spaces, dine in our favorite restaurants, attend movies or theater, and travel. Where is this pandemic heading and what can we expect over the coming months?

At our November 17th ZOOM webinar, we are pleased to have as our speaker the Public Health Officer for Marin County, Dr. Matt Willis. Dr. Willis, who is responsible for setting health policies for the virus for Marin County, will provide a history of the path of the disease locally and will give his view of what we should expect going forward. He also will give his insight into the disease from his rare perspective as a survivor of the virus. Program attendees will have an opportunity to submit questions to Dr. Willis.

This and all our virtual events are being brought to the community free of charge as part of our effort to continue our series of dialogues while in-person meetings cannot be held. We hope you’ll register to join us and will tune in on the 17th at noon to hear this timely and important discussion.

Dr. MATT WILLS is a Marin native and has been the County’s Public Health Officer since 2013. Dr Willis calls on experience as a physician, an epidemiologist, and a member of this community to guide public health strategy for Marin. Prior to assuming his current position, he served in the US Public Health Service as Director of Primary Care on the Navajo Reservation and at the Centers for Disease Control in Atlanta, where he conducted research and outbreak investigations in the U.S. and abroad.

Dr. Willis has published research on tuberculosis control, disaster response, and opioid safety. He holds a Medical Degree from Temple University and completed a Master’s in Public Health and his Internal Medicine residency at Harvard. He lives in San Anselmo with his wife and three children.
