LIVE: AMP COVID-19 Virtual Town Hall: Lessons Learned Since April

Tuesday, October 27, 2020 2:00PM - 3:00PM EDT


AMP will present key findings from a recent nation-wide COVID-19 survey of laboratories, which assessed various aspects of COVID-19 molecular diagnostic testing including current and anticipated testing capacity, testing turn-around times, supply chain issues, test performance and validation, and the processes for reporting to federal/state organizations. Data will be compared to that obtained in an earlier survey conducted in April to develop a comprehensive timeline of bottlenecks and identify current issues with testing access. Additionally, the briefing will include timely policy recommendations based on the survey’s findings, which aim to effectively leverage America’s large and diverse laboratory network to best respond to the Coronavirus pandemic. The survey data and recommendations presented will frame a subject matter expert panel discussion with an opportunity for town hall attendees to ask questions.

We invite you to participate in the discussion to help inform, collaborate, and assist with AMP’s ongoing clinical practice and advocacy initiatives during this pandemic and help improve future emerging pathogen responses.
