Episode 6

Preventing the Next Global Pandemic with Dr. Jonathan Unkart MD, MPH, MS

by | Apr 15, 2020 | Podcast

In this episode, Pavan Lohia sits down with Dr. Jonathan Unkart MD, MPH, MS to discuss the future of COVID-19 within our communities, the epidemiology behind this pandemic, and what we can do to prepare ourselves for the next public health emergency.

As COVID-19 continues to spread globally, individuals are increasingly feeling the impact in their daily lives. Beyond the global health crisis, COVID-19 is having a severe economic impact on communities, businesses, and medical organizations. However, worldwide efforts (such as social distancing) are helping flatten the curve and communities are banding together to get critical PPE to front-line workers.

Dr. Unkart is a physician epidemiologist specializing in the treatment and research of cardiovascular disease. He has received advanced clinical and research training in public health, disease prevention, epidemiology, surgery, biostatistics and clinical trials. Outside of the clinic, Dr. Unkart teaches and conducts research at UC San Diego to further our understanding of the development and progression of chronic diseases — leading to frequent publishings in the Journal of American Heart Association, American Journal of Epidemiology, and American Heart Journal.
