Event: Confounded Errors

Effects of Public Health Policy Failures During the COVID-19 Pandemic

National Association of Scholars

A little over three years ago, the United States was put into lockdown. The COVID-19 pandemic would upend the lives of all Americans and shine a spotlight on the failures and successes of public health policy. 

Many of those failures occurred due to a familiar problem: unsound science and unsafe regulation. The National Association of Scholars (NAS) has published a series of reports titled Shifting Sands, discussing the effects of such failures of science and policy in PM2.5 regulation and the Food and Drug Administration’s nutritional guidance. 

Join the National Association of Scholars on Tuesday, July 18, at 2 pm ET as we launch the third report in this series, Confounded Errors. This report dives into the science driving the policy decisions of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the National Institutes of Health in the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic.

This report will feature Warren Kindzierski, Former Professor at the School of Public Health at the University of Alberta-Edmonton; David Randall, NAS Director of Research; Jon Sanders, Director of the Center for Food, Power, and Life at the John Locke Foundation; Scott Turner, NAS Director of the Intrusion of Diversity into the Sciences Project; and Stan Young, NAS Director of the Shifting Sands Project.
