August Program Chair: Andrew Stanton

Friday August 5th Noon Meeting start 11:45 am End 1:00 pm sharp (Hawaii Time)

Speaker: Dr. Tim Brown Senior Fellow at East-West Center –

Topic: West vs East Covid Responses

This is a replay of Dr Browns talk at the East West Center International Media Conference “Connecting in a No Trust World” at the Hawaii Convention Center in June 2022

Dr. Tim Brown talks about his analysis on what Countries / States did well and poorly in the Covid battles. Countries with Women leaders did better. He looks back and discusses the first year of the covid pandemic responses, the miss steps and good steps made. Compares efforts of the West vs. Asia. How Science, Public Health, Media, and Politics brought both good and bad. Because credibility of WHO and CDC was lost early the public looked to social media and the NEWS for information, while misinformation was weaponized by some. He explains all these issues and provides his take on moving forward for this pandemic and future ones.

Dr. Tim Brown is a Senior Fellow in the Research Program at East-West Center, where he directs a small team of epidemiologists and programmers in developing and applying tools for HIV modeling and analysis. Before joining the Center, he was formerly assistant professor in electrical engineering, University of Hawai'i; adjunct assistant professor in the Program on Computing, Department of Mathematics, University of California at Los Angeles; and applications group manager, AMETEK Computer Research Division, Pasadena.
