Watch When You Want for Free! “COVID-19 Year 5: Are We Prepared for the Next Pandemic?” (1.5 CEs)

Did you know you can earn up to 11 complimentary CEs if you watch all of the NASW trainings offered on-demand via the Connect to End COVID-19 campaign

In addition, you will polish clinical skills such as motivational interviewing and SBIRT (Screening, Brief Intervention and Referral to Treatment) and strengthen your knowledge of COVID-19 vaccination, trends, and research; Black maternal health, long COVID, and emergency pandemic preparation.

The latest and last Connect to End COVID-19 campaign training, held live May 8, is now available on demand and offers 1.5 free CEs: “COVID-19 Year 5: Are We Prepared for the Next Pandemic?”

Featuring the latest research on COVID-19 and long COVID, the workshop also has an eye-opening fireside chat with acclaimed epidemiologist Dr. Michael Osterholm, advisor to the Biden Administration and founding Director of the Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy. His book, The Big One: How to Prepare for World-Altering Pandemics to Come, is scheduled for publication later in 2024.  

Osterholm discusses lessons learned from current and prior pandemics, shares hard truths about what it will take to prevent a catastrophe worse than COVID-19, and outlines the crucial leadership role of social workers in pandemic preparedness and response.
