Topics will span the importance of entrepreneurship and innovation in addressing both the immediate and long-term effects of emerging infectious diseases such as COVID-19, how to support and improve population and public health, health care delivery, and health equity during such crises and beyond, and the impact of health disparities on care access and health outcomes. The discussion will also explore today’s promising areas of research and innovations on the horizon to address these issues.
