CAP Hosts Media Briefing
The Rapidly Changing COVID-19 Testing Landscape: Where We Are / Where We Are Going
The College of American Pathologists (CAP) hosts its first in a series of virtual media briefings featuring leading pathologists—the physicians on the frontlines of testing—offering straight talk on the latest in testing. Experts will also address where we are as schools have and will reopen, and athletes may or may not return to sport.
In August 2020, the CAP commissioned an Ipsos market research study with responses from 1,000 US consumers (age 18 to 65) to determine their understanding, attitudes and perceptions of COVID-19 testing, the role of medical professionals, and the primary sources of information they trust more.
Panelists will address the current testing landscape including:
- what tests are now available, what they tell us and are they reliable
- how supply shortages and Medicare cuts may impact access to testing
- practical solutions to solve testing challenges
- current state of schools and testing
- resource material for parents and others to help navigate testing on college and university campuses
Date: Tuesday, September 1, 2020
Time: 11 AM - 12 PM ET / 10 - 11 AM CT / 8 - 9 AM PT
