Values-Based Behavior under COVID-19

November 4th, 2020 10 to 12 am (UTC - 03:00)

In the absence of a vaccine or drug treatment, there is an urgent need for change in collective behaviors. Our next webinar will discuss Values-Based Behavior under Covid-19, motivated by the widespread polarization between compliance versus rejection of guidelines issued by health and government authorities to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Experts on social and behavioral sciences will describe how society has been coping with this threatening environment and will discuss factors that influence behavioral change and the prospects for global public health.
