How did Israel go from their third lockdown to not requiring masks in public in less than five months? Israel is being celebrated as the world’s most vaccinated nation, with the Jewish Telegraphic Agency reporting that over 50% of their civilians have gotten their shots. But how did they get to this point? Join the Federation’s Maimonides Society for their next Brunch@Home on Sunday, June 6, at 10 a.m. to find out.
Asher Salmon, MD, Ph.D., MDA, will be speaking virtually from Israel to explain how his country navigated the pandemic and what we can learn from their process. Salmon is head of international relations at the Israel Ministry of Health.
Prior to joining the Ministry, Salmon served as deputy director of Hadassah Medical Center and of Barzilai Medical Center. During the COVID-19 crisis, Salmon has also been responsible for inter-ministerial coordination in the areas of travel, borders and national security, serving as the Ministry liaison with the National Security Council. A member of the National Health Council and the OECD Health Bureau, Salmon is a clinical oncologist by training and holds the rank of Lt Colonel (res) in the military.
