Privacy & Public Health in light of the COVID-19 pandemic: WPF panelist

The Giles Rich American Inn of Court is holding a virtual program 13 April, 2021. WPF’s ED Pam Dixon will be speaking on a panel focused on international perspectives on COVID-19 and privacy. We will update this event with attendance information prior to the event.

When: 13 April, 2021, 6 pm

What: Panel and discussion

Topic: The COVID-19 pandemic has placed an intense spotlight on the intersection of privacy and public health. This program will explore international perspectives—American vs. European—and the perspectives of different actors—private actors vs. state actors. We’ll explore these perspectives in the context of tracking and telehealth and look at implications in different jurisdictions.
