The pandemic of COVID-19 is changing our lives and communities and will continue to do so in innumerable ways. How will our future be shaped by COVID-19 and how can we use the experience of COVID-19 to help shape the future of public health? Join Dr. Ed Ehlinger to explore plagues, pandemics, and how they have shaped not only public health but our society’s history and present. This members-only event is an opportunity to learn and reflect on how the lessons of the past can inform and help shape our future. 


Dr. Ed Ehlinger is a past president of MPHA and former commissioner of health for Minnesota. He is also a past president of ASTHO (Association of State and Territorial Health Officials). He labels himself as a Public Health Metaphysician – someone concerned with understanding the nature of being healthy as individuals, a community, and society along with the conditions that create health.
