As the global health situation involving the Coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to evolve, the Becker Friedman Institute, with guidance from the University of Chicago’s Office of the Provost, have decided that the best course of action is to cancel this event. We recognize that this decision comes at a cost in terms of foregone opportunities, but the public health risks raised by the coronavirus outbreak and the safety of faculty, staff and visitors are our top priority.
