Podcast #68 – The eSchools+ Initiative

May 4, 2021

Today, we’re joined by the creators of the eSchools+ Initiative, a program designed to address inequity caused by school closures through connecting parents and teachers with school reopening data and research. We’ll explore the initiative’s conception and the unique challenges this effort posed given the rapidly changing landscape of the COVID-19 pandemic. Our guests are Dr. Ruth Faden, founder of the Johns Hopkins Berman Institute of Bioethics, Dr. Annette Anderson, deputy director for the Johns Hopkins Center for Safe and Healthy Schools, and Dr. Megan Collins, a bioethicist at the Berman School of Bioethics and co-director of the Johns Hopkins Consortium for School-Based Health Solutions.
