A COVID-19 Crisis Playbook

We have never experienced a crisis with the spread and impact we have seen from COVID-19. This novel coronavirus has revealed that the world did not have a fully developed playbook for such an event. An interactive discussion led by Dr. Margaret Gloria, Medical Director, and Lindsay Hutter, Chief Strategy & Marketing Officer, of Goodwin House Incorporated. (GHI is a senior living and health care services organization based on Northern Virginia) We will learn how Goodwin House created a playbook based on their front-line experience during the pandemic and has gone public with it so other organizations can adapt it and safely resume operations. Since its release, the playbook has been adopted by other senior living organizations, schools, churches, trade associations and more.
