Crisis & Chaos: Lessons from the Front Lines of the War Against COVID-19 from Dr. Jerome Adams
20 Jun 2023
When COVID-19 began spreading rapidly, the world was taken by surprise. As the ensuing pandemic raged, we faced one constant—a lack of consistent, scientifically sound, trusted information that the average person could understand and put into practice to keep themselves and their families safe. In his new book, Crisis and Chaos: Lessons from the Front Lines of the War Against COVID-19 (releasing in November), Dr. Jerome Adams, 20th Surgeon General of the United States and one of our most sought-after speakers, reveals critical lessons learned from both mistakes and successes during the pandemic.
Dr. Adams explains the urgency to create a safer environment for individuals, families and communities, how we can respond better to the next threat and why we must promote health equity for all. They are lessons well learned. We must work together to find solutions through a bottom-up, community-driven approach to prepare ourselves for inevitable future health crises.
One of our most sought-after speakers, Dr. Adams delivers compelling talks drawing from his professional and personal experiences. After growing up poor and Black in a Southern rural community, he went on to lead the U.S. Public Health Service as “America’s Doctor” during a worldwide pandemic. He is passionately committed to fighting issues that his own family and community experienced, including limited healthcare access, chronic disease, substance use disorder, mental illness and more.
