Published October 20, 2020
Presented by Krisan Osterby, Campus Planning Leader and Principal, DLR Group | Kennard Brown, Executive Vice Chancellor and Chief Operations Officer, University of Tennessee Health Science Center | Rebecca Waltman, Senior Space Planner and Analyst, DLR Group | Sherree Wilson, Associate Vice Chancellor and Associate Dean for Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DEI), Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis

Creative emergency response activities and fledgling partnerships within academic medical center (AMC) campuses and communities have broken down institutional, municipal, healthcare, and corporate silos to improve public health and quality of life. The pandemic has revolutionized business-as-usual across higher education and AMCs are equipped to respond to such crises through partnerships. Given strained fiscal resources, an atmosphere of uncertainty, and an outcry for innovation and collaboration, a framework for building partnerships is critical. Join us to discover how you can apply AMC pandemic responses for long-term best practices at your institution.

Learning Outcomes:

  1. Describe the five typologies of intentional partnerships through the lens of research intensive AMCs and their recent emergency responses to COVID-19.
  2. Demonstrate how the pandemic has enabled the breakdown of silos and facilitated creative solutions to help community partners and public health.
  3. Assess and advocate for the role that diversity plays across the spectrum of partnership concepts.
  4. Develop a list of emergency response activities, initiatives, sponsors, and contacts to ensure public health and safety at your institution.
