Club EvMed: Teaching evolution in the time of COVID-19

We’re launching a new web series to keep the evolutionary medicine community connected during this time of social distancing: Club EvMed — Virtual Evolutionary Medicine Conversations. These regularly-held virtual meetings are styled around the idea of a journal club, with a different topic and discussion leader each time. We hope you’ll join us next Thursday for our first installation (details below)!

Club EvMed: Teaching evolution in the time of COVID-19

Thursday, April 2nd at 12pm ET

The COVID-19 pandemic has rapidly shaped our world and invaded the public consciousness. How can we use the emergence of this novel pathogen to encourage evolutionary understanding? Join us for a discussion with Jeff Thorne, Professor of Biological Sciences and Statistics at NC State, and David Rasmussen, Assistant Professor of Entomology and Plant Pathology at NC State, on ways to employ the coronavirus pandemic to help teach evolutionary medicine. Attendees are encouraged to bring their suggestions on course integration and contribute to the conversation.
