Disbanded—But the Band’s Still Together

President Biden has formally disbanded the coronavirus advisory board that has guided his pandemic response plans since November.  
 
But the team of top doctors, researchers, and public health experts isn’t going far.
 
The group’s 3 co-chairs have taken jobs with the administration, and many others plan to continue their collaboration by “essentially forming a shadow advisory committee,” STAT reports.
 
The Quote: “We decided that, well, we don’t have to be an official body. We can just get together and share our understanding of what’s happening, and people have various outlets to make that understanding effective,” said advisory board member Zeke Emanuel.
