AER20’s Virtual Roundtables will enable participants to network, learn, and benefit from the shared knowledge and experience of the group through a moderated dialogue around a specific topic. AER20 will feature two discussion groups on COVID-19 related issues (December 1 and 16). During Week 3’s group, attendees will discuss prioritization of COVID-19-related versus non-COVID-19- related research, examining factors such as assessing risk/benefit ratio; recruitment/enrollment of participants (e.g., what precautions are put in place to keep people safe; use of testing; technology disparities if studies are online, etc.); and ensuring quality when research dynamics are changing. This session will be hosted in Zoom and attendees are encouraged use the video and audio features to actively participate in the dialogue.
