The Hoover Institution hosts "Preparing for the Next Pandemic: Mobilizing and Integrating Responses Across the Government and the Private Sector" on Wednesday, October 14, 2020 from 9:00 AM PST/12:00 PM EST.

Lieut. Gen. H.R. McMaster has convened a research team at the Hoover Institution and Stanford University in collaboration with the U.S. Civilian Corps to capture lessons from the domestic COVID-19 response with an eye toward recommending how to improve the coordination and integration of government and private sector efforts in response to pandemics. The findings and recommendations are also meant to inform responses to other domestic crises that are large in scale and affect wide areas of the United States.
