Event Description
Join the COVID-19 Journal Club for a discussion on the paper “Impact of COVID-19 Lockdown Policy on Homicide, Suicide, and Motor Vehicle Deaths in Peru”, by Renzo JC Calderon-Anyosa, MD, and Jay S. Kaufman from the department of Epidemiology, Biostatistics and Occupational Health at McGill University.
Kevin Martinez-Folgar, MD, researcher and medical data analyst at the Centro Integral del INCAP para la Prevención de las Enfermedades Crónicas and SALURBAL, will discuss the paper which was uploaded to the MedRxIv preprint server on July 14, 2020. The paper uses the Peruvian National Death Information System to conduct an interrupted time series analysis to assess the impact of lockdown measures on external causes of death. We will also briefly discuss a recently-published MMWR paper by Mark É. Czeisler and colleagues from CDC that describes mental health, substance use, and suicidal ideation during the COVID-19 pandemic in the United States.
Drexel staff, faculty and students are welcome to take part in this discussion.
