This week we will discuss food insecurity and its impact on our vulnerable populations – particularly our seniors. We’ve invited an expert,
Kim McCoy Wade
, Director of the California Department on Aging, who can share resources for both those who need help accessing food, and those who want to help address the problem.
We will also learn about what's being done right now locally to expand testing and contact tracing in our community -- the factor that will determine when we can return to work and reopen businesses.
We’ll be joined by
Dr. Stephen Parodi
, the lead physician for Kaiser Permanente’s national coronavirus response, to talk about the massive effort to increase testing in the East Bay.
Additionally, we will hear from
Dr. Nicholas Moss
of the Alameda County Health Department, who can speak to the efforts to dramatically scale up contact tracing in the coming weeks.
I will also answer your questions about the city’s response, so please submit all your questions by
