Chapter Holds 10th Annual Gold Circle Event Virtually

BAE Systems sponsored the chapter's Gold Circle session "COVID: A Defining Moment for This Generation," held in March with New Horizons. Jay Schnitzer, vice president, chief technology officer and chief medical officer, The MITRE Corporation, joined Rich Byrne, senior vice president, advisor to the president and CEO, The MITRE Corporation, to discuss the impacts of COVID and the new normal, post-COVID environment. Schnitzer described how The MITRE Corporation transitioned to a remote workforce and its coalition with the Mayo Clinic to create C19 (health care coalition of 1,000) to assist the government with COVID projects. Moving to the future, Byrne cautioned that disinformation on the Internet is an escalating challenge that has to be addressed universally through communication, tools and training if there is to be hope to decipher truth from fiction in the future. And Schnitzer prophesied that the 21st Century will come to be known as the "life sciences" century, fueling extraordinary advancements that can't possibly be envisioned today.
