Critical thinking can help us cope with frightening events and tackle key questions. How can we make sense of incomplete data? How can we separate true measures of risk from mere feelings of risk? What would be more helpful than buying bulk toilet paper or surgical masks? Laura Shanner (PhD) will discuss these questions and more in thinking about how to respond to the coronavirus outbreak. Shanner has an extensive background in biomedical ethics, having taught at the School of Public Health, University of Alberta and having served as an expert consultant for policy development committees for Health Canada. This lecture is free and open to everyone.
