Recorded | Friday, October 23 at 1:00pm CT

Since the beginning of 2020, urgent care has been riding a roller coaster. Flu season was at its peak in February; visit volume hit an all-time low in April; and today we’re treating patients through a pandemic and testing for COVID-19 at rates we couldn’t have imagined possible. And here we are–back at the cusp of flu season, but what will it look like in this new normal?

Join Dr. Matt McCarthy, MD, infectious disease expert, and author of Superbugs: The Race to Stop an Epidemic and Dr. David Stern, Experity CEO, for a webinar where they’ll discuss:

  • Flu and COVID predictions for the upcoming season and what visit volume may look like
  • What we can learn from lethal infectious diseases of the past and how we can apply history to the fight against COVID-19
  • The intricacies of clinical trials, creating vaccines, and the motives behind pharmaceutical companies
  • How urgent care can apply its business knowledge of the flu to advance our industry with the release of a COVID vaccine
