2nd Thursday of the month |  8:30 – 11:30 am   | Oakland, CA

Upcoming Zoom Meeting

Thursday, July 16, 2020

Opening Discussion Topic:

Predicting What’s Next in The New Normal

In spite of a “worrisome uptick” in COVID-19 cases, most Bay Area counties are proceeding to reopen, even nail salons, by July 1st. But should they? Between 5/24 and 6/24, the 7-day average of new COVID cases in California rose from 2,032 to 4,620, according to Worldometer. So how can those who govern, insure, and are “essential” to our health predict the future? Axene’s CPR Model can help us plan ahead.

During our Group Discussion, please plan to share:

  • Your organization’s latest response to the States’ move to Stage 3 – juxtaposed with the statewide increase in the number of COVID cases?
  • Are you rethinking any business plans you had for the months ahead?
  • Are you rethinking any personal plans (vacations, summer camps, etc.)?

Then, our Featured Member John Price, a Partner with Axene Health Partners, will introduce Axene actuary Stephanie Entzminger, who created and will demonstrate Axene’s COVID-19 Planning Resource Model (CPR), which is already being used by the San Diego County Health and Human Services Agency to model up to ten interventions to mitigate the infection rate and delay COVID’s resultant demand on the resources that would be required to treat patients with the coronavirus. It’s impressive!
