David Ewing Presentation Cancelled

David Ewing lecture is cancelled and will be rescheduled

Due to concerns about the spread of Covid-19, and recommendations to avoid public gatherings, we will be rescheduling the March 25th event. 

Covid-19          A lot of us are worried about this virus, and the 24-hour news cycle isn’t helping matters. In comparison to SARS (severe acute respiratory syndrome) and MERS (Middle East respiratory syndrome) coronaviruses, which were both identified in the past 20 years, COVID-19 is likely more highly transmissible but not as deadly, researchers have noted.(source in comments). For people over 80 it becomes much riskier. Vanderbilt’s recommendations for their staff is the best prescriptive that I’ve seen. I keep thinking of the classic British poster "Keep Calm and Carry On."
