AMA to host free COVID-19 vaccine webinar

The American Medical Association (AMA) will host a free “COVID-19: What physicians need to know” webinar at 2 p.m. EST on Thursday, December 3.

The event will feature AMA President Susan R. Bailey, M.D., and Peter Marks, M.D., PhD, the director of the Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research at the Food and Drug Administration.

AMA says that, “Dr. Marks will discuss the latest developments on the road to effective COVID-19 vaccines…[and] do a deep dive into the Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) process, specifically explaining how the timeline has been shortened from a matter of years to a matter of months. Physicians will learn the similarities and differences between routine vaccine development and the EUA process and understand how accelerated approval is being arrived at safely.”

Registration is limited to physicians, residents, and medical students.
