Northeastern University—COVID-19 Response at a University without a Medical School
The SARS-CoV-2 pandemic caused most universities to shutter their physical doors, including Northeastern University, in March 2020. Almost immediately after the closing of the university, the reopening conversations began.
In this webinar with Jared Auclair, dean of professional programs and graduate affairs at Northeastern University, you'll learn about the strategy that Northeastern University employed to ensure a safe reopening of the school for the Fall 2020 academic term, specifically the creation of the Life Center Testing Center, the university’s in-house SARS-CoV-2 testing lab.
You’ll hear the amazing story of how the lab was set up and licensed in approximately six weeks’ time, and challenges we faced along the way—especially those unique to a university without a medical school.
