COVID-19 Webinar Series: Public Health Updates
Presented by the Indiana Department of Health and Qsource
The pandemic is evolving with the emergence of the new Omicron variant which is very different from the previous variants, availability of vaccine boosters, and new therapeutic options. CDC guidance has been updated in view of the current trends.
Please join Qsource and the Indiana Department of Health’s (IDoH) Deputy Health Commissioner and State Epidemiologist and Medical Director for Long-Term Care during the month of January for a series of Office Hours calls containing public health updates on current state of the COVID-19 pandemic, the impact of the Omicron variant (particularly in rural areas), and how we are responding.
These will be interactive sessions with an opportunity to ask questions directly of the IDoH team and to submit questions prior to each session to assure the topics you need to hear about are included.
