Dr. Rebecca Heick, assistant professor of public health at Augustana College, will present "Tip of the Iceberg: Understanding the Bigger Picture of Pandemic Disease Severity."
While it is understandable that the number of deaths has become a major focus of media reports and intervention efforts, mortality is just the tip of the iceberg. Less severe disease is much more common and is an important component of the bigger prevention picture.
This is one of the annual Frieze Lecture Series, a 23-year partnership between the Rock Island Public Library and Augustana College. This year's theme is "Global Crises, Past and Present."
Lectures will be offered online via Zoom. Registered participants will receive the meeting invitation via email.
