Show Notes

It’s not the vaccine that saves lives; it’s the vaccination. This is the story of the last mile: getting life-saving doses into people’s arms under the strain of unprecedented demand. Hear from Donna Drummond, Chief Expense Officer at Northwell Health where the first Pfizer vaccine in the US was administered, along with Wafaa El-Sadr, MD, MPH, MPA University Professor of Epidemiology and Medicine at Columbia who has been a leading voice in global public health for decades. Our series ends with a deep dive into how the pandemic has transformed global supply chains and what it means for the future in a world where disruption is likely to be the norm. Join Rear Admiral (RET) John Polowczyk, Columbia Business School professors Medini Singh and Awi Federgruen, and Prashant Yadav of the Center for Global Development as they discuss the lessons learned, if, indeed, we will heed them.
