Public health experts from the U.S. and Latin America, along with health industry representatives, convened to analyze the policy and politics relating to the pandemic as part of the “2021 Business of Health Care” conference, hosted by the Miami Herbert Business School.
With an aim to remedy the health, economic, and societal ills accentuated by the devastating COVID-19 pandemic—even as the virus again surges in different areas of the United States and Latin America—health experts explored a range of topics at the virtual half-day Business of Health Care conference on April 16.
Steven Ullmann, director of the Center for Health Management and Policy at the University of Miami Patti and Allan Herbert Business School, launched the 10th annual conference, themed “Policy, Politics, and the Pandemic—the U.S. and Beyond,” welcoming the more than 1,200 registered viewers. University President Julio Frenk provided opening remarks.
“The most striking aspect of this pandemic is the huge variation in national responses and in their corresponding results,” said Frenk.
