Tuesday, April 21, 1 p.m. ET

Want to know where the next wave of COVID-19 shortages will be, and who is most likely to be affected in the months to come? For what supplies are health providers most likely to be in hot pursuit? Tune in for AHCJ's webcast about supplies, equipment, and personnel issues to come.

What specialties will be in short supply because so many in their field will be burned out, exhausted, sick or in quarantine and unable to work and who will fill their roles? Marcus Schabacker, M.D., Ph.D., president and chief executive officer of ECRI, an independent nonprofit organization focused on patient safety. He will talk about what hospitals, clinics and private practices will be dealing with through the fall as they struggle to bring the country back, meet demands for patient care and fill the backlog.

There will be time for Q&A during this webcast and you can submit your questions ahead of time to be sure they are addressed.
