June 2020 SMCDFA Monthly Virtual Meeting


"COVID-19: A Primer on the Pandemic and Politics"


Speakers: Marshall Dinowitz and Tony Holtzman.


Marshall Dinowitz is retired from Genentech where he was responsible for various aspects of viral safety in biotechnology production.  He has a Doctor of Science in Pathobiology and Virology from the Johns Hopkins School of Public Health, and was on the faculty of the Arizona Medical Center where he taught virology and medical and molecular microbiology.  Marshall is the Vice Chair of SMCDFA.   


John Holtzman is Emeritus Professor of Pediatrics, Public Health and Epidemiology at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.  Tony lives in Menlo Park.  Since retiring, he has published five novels and his "The Strange Malady of Allessandro's Uncle and Other Stories" will be published this summer.


Marshall and Tony will lead us through a discussion of virus basics, the range of individual responses, its spread, growth and infectivity, and containment and safety in the future, as well as the political ramifications. 


We will also hear reports from our task forces:  2020 Elections, Social Justice, Healthcare, Fighting Voter Suppression, and Legislative Bills.



No desserts this time, but great ideas and camaraderie!
