Capturing Economic Impacts in Pandemic Policy

IHE CEO Dr. Christopher McCabe presented on September 15th to the Pacific Northwest Economic Region (PNWER) COVID-19 Recovery Call webinar series on the One Society Network which he co-chairs with Dr. Christopher Cotton of Queen’s University. The presentation was titled: “One Society Network: Capturing Economic Impacts in Pandemic Policy”.

At the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, PNWER ( began assembling calls of elected officials in the Pacific Northwest Region to discuss ways to respond to COVID-19 as a region. The goal of the call series is to share information and promote best practices to ensure decision makers in the region have a working understanding of the ‘puzzle pieces’ that will support safe sustainable post-COVID economic recovery.
