COVID & Intelligence: What More Can Be Done?
The COVID-19 pandemic has wreaked havoc on everything from global supply chains to individual lives, with its long-term implications only beginning to take shape. Pandemics, a public health issue, are proving to be a national security one as well. Are America’s national security institutions prepared to address this threat? What role should the intelligence community play? What reforms could improve global health surveillance?

The Michael V. Hayden Center for Intelligence, Policy, and International Security and the Schar School’s biodefense program are pleased to present a discussion on these questions. Panelists include Rep. Eric Swalwell (CA-15), a four-term congressman at the forefront of legislative efforts to reform the intelligence community’s approach to pandemic awareness; Dr. Julie Gerberding, who served as director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention from 2002 to 2009, where she led the agency through the SARS outbreak, and is currently a senior leader at the pharmaceutical company Merck; and Matt Berrett, a former CIA assistant director and head of its Global Issues Mission Center, and cofounder of the Center for Anticipatory Intelligence at Utah State University. David Priess, our senior fellow and publisher and chief operating officer of Lawfare, will moderate the event

This Hayden Center presentation is being recorded for use on our website and social media.

The Hayden Center is located at George Mason University's Schar School of Policy & Government in Arlington, VA. Gen Hayden, our founder, has been a distinguished visiting professor at Schar School for 12 years, while David Priess, our senior fellow, joined the Schar School last year.
