Event Description
Join the Dornsife COVID-19 Journal Club for a discussion of the paper “Association Between Statewide School Closure and COVID-19 Incidence and Mortality in the U.S.” by Katherine A. Auger and colleagues from the Division of Hospital Medicine, Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center. Max Pistilli, epidemiology and biostatistics doctoral candidate, will discuss the paper, which was published in JAMA on July 29, 2020
The paper uses an interrupted time series analysis to describe the impact of school closures on SARS-CoV-2 incidence in the United States between March and May. We will also briefly discuss a recently-published MMWR paper by Christine Szablewski and colleagues from CDC that describes a cluster of cases of COVID-19 among attendees of an overnight camp in Georgia.

Drexel staff, faculty and students are welcome to take part in this discussion.
