Listen to an audio podcast of this program.

Janice Weiner is a graduate of Iowa City West, Princeton University and Stanford Law School. She practiced law before joining the U.S. State Department in 1987. Her postings included East Berlin, Turkey, Belgium, Poland, Canada, Mexico, as Consul General in Dusseldorf, Germany, and liaison to Capitol Hill. After retirement, she worked for the American Foreign Service Association before moving home to Iowa.

She is an at-large member of the Iowa City City Council and currently the Interim Executive Director of CIVIC. Janice served on the board of Shelter House, and is currently on the boards of Agudas Achim Synagogue, UNA/UNA Johnson County, and the Johnson County Democrats. She plays with the Community Band and sings with the "Heartbeats" Hospice Singers. She has two grown daughters and is her young granddaughter's guardian.

In this talk, Janice examines the current trends of the world's governments in responding to the COVID-19 crisis on individual state levels, and discusses why we must scale this response up to a multilateral level.
