Cities, counties, states and nations are making difficult choices to protect citizens and stand up local healthcare systems. From stay-at-home orders to physical distancing, we are changing our daily routines. What happens if these steps are taken too late? Or rolled back too soon? What is happening to the most vulnerable among us: elders, individuals who experience disabilities, those who do not have health insurance and access to regular medical care? A panel of local experts will explore these questions for us in Sedgwick County. The panel will be moderated by Melissa Walker, interim director of the Hugo Wall School of Public Affairs.
