Treating COVID’ – featuring an inspiring panel of alumni and colleagues – 18.30, 10 June 2021
The everyday pressures on the NHS and healthcare are real and, as a result of COVID-19, have never been more challenging. Across the country, healthcare workers have worked tirelessly, putting their lives and those of their families on the line in their valiant efforts to fight this pandemic. At times, our health systems were at breaking point due to staff shortages, inadequate equipment and PPE, lack of space and testing limitations.
In this panel discussion, University of Reading Deputy-Vice-Chancellor, Parveen Yaqoob, will be joined by colleagues and alumni who have been working on the frontline during this pandemic. We will hear about the challenges they continue to face, the sacrifices they have made, and the impact the pandemic has had on the healthcare sector as well as on their lives.
Amidst the despair and chaos the pandemic has caused, it’s important to recognise the positive advances that have been made in the fight against COVID-19. Please join us for this special event to hear firsthand from our panel about the incredible efforts and heart-warming stories, as well as the struggles, from the frontline of the global pandemic.
We are delighted to be joined by:
- Gurinder Singh (MPharm Pharmacy, 2012), Lecturer in Pharmacy Practise, University of Reading
- Dr James Cutlan (BA Economics, 2014), Medical Doctor, Royal Glamorgan Hospital
- Sadek Alam (Physician Associate programme, 2018), Physician Associate in Surgical Liaison, Royal Berkshire Hospital
