A message from Professor Peter Piot

Dear Alumni,

I would like to update you on the situation at LSHTM regarding COVID-19 and to convey to you that we are continuously thinking about our alumni community during these times of uncertainty and anxiety.

Since January, we have been monitoring closely and responding to the COVID-19 situation as it unfolds around the world. The skills and expertise of our staff mean that we are uniquely placed both to mount outbreak response efforts and to advise on their planning and mitigation. Working around the clock, our experts are providing accurate information and advice to governments, industry and the public around the world. Here is a link to the COVID response work of the School.

It was inspiring to see the leadership of LSHTM alumni early in the crisis, be it in international organisations such as WHO, or nationally. We are also grateful to you for reaching out to the Alumni team and the school to promote your initiatives. For example, the LSHTM community came together at the start of the outbreak to translate data from Mandarin, making data and information accessible.

This is the time to show what we stand for: health equity in a world globally connected.

We know that our alumni are here for LSHTM. I want you to know that LSHTM is here for you.

Best wishes, 
Peter
