As part of their Developing Socially-Aware Quantitative Intuition project, the CUES Spanning Boundaries Team hosted an online Herd COVID-19 Vaccination Challenge.  Asking "What if you got to choose who gets vaccinated?" this simulation explored the impact of various hypothetical COVID vaccine distribution plans.  A panel of Pima County leaders, policymakers, and faculty closed the event by discussing the real-world challenges of equitably distributing the COVID-19 vaccine.   

  • The event aimed to sensitize students to the ethnic, racial, and income inequalities underlying empirical evidence, and the importance of accounting for these factors in making policy decisions.  
  • All undergraduates, from all majors, were encouraged to participate.
