-  Since the enforcement of widespread emergency response measures to control its outbreak in Spring 2020, COVID-19 has had an undeniably massive impact on society, and thus is an extremely, topical focus of study. The main goal of this course is to educate students on the systematic impact of scientific literature and its importance for making informed decisions within the context of COVID-19. This course will be an outlet for students to practice science communication with weekly presentations, explore the scientific basis behind infamous COVID-19 phenomena along with the mastery of these concepts, which are becoming a favoured commodity in various aspects of science and medical careers such as academic research, coursework, future job and graduate school interviews and/or current occupational work.
