The BUMC COVID-19 Information website is live. It provides links to information concerning BU Medical Campus preparedness and response, guidance for travelers, and important resources for faculty, staff and students. It will be updated with additional pertinent information for the Medical Campus community, as warranted. More information is available on the University website.

Today, March 8, is International Women’s Day. A global celebration, it calls on individuals to challenge stereotypes, stand up against biases, and celebrate and support women in their accomplishments—not just for one day, but all year long. The BU Medical Campus gathered to strike the #EachforEqual pose in honor of this year’s theme.
