Re-Entry Roundtable Series

The Science of Safe Re-Entry

With Epidemiologist Grace Macalino, PhD, MPH

While vaccine distribution will soon make re-entry possible, many business leaders have questions:

  • When exactly can we safely go back to the office? What are the determining factors?
  • Do we need to continue wearing masks? Distancing? Temp checks? For how long?
  • How many people can we include in sit-down meetings?
  • Are we in for this again next year?

As part of our ongoing efforts to help you prepare for a safe and productive return to your office, Optimal Networks is thrilled to host a roundtable discussion with Dr. Grace Macalino to answer these questions and more.

Dr. Macalino, a passionate presenter, holds a PhD in Epidemiology from Johns Hopkins, and graduate degrees in Physiology and Public Health from Georgetown and George Washington University. She is the Founder & CEO of Marimac Insight, a management consulting firm that provides executive scientific advisory services.

After offering her expert advice on key considerations for work post-vaccine, she will answer any and all questions you have.
