A new podcast about work involving the novel coronavirus and COVID-19 launches today. We highlight some of the heroic efforts in research and patient care underway on the Washington University Medical Campus.
Shortly after a novel coronavirus first appeared in China in late 2019, researchers, doctors and staff at the School of Medicine began preparing for the possibility of an outbreak.
In this episode, Steven J. Lawrence, MD, an associate professor of medicine in the Division of Infectious Diseases, discusses the disease, the medical community’s response to it, and what we might expect moving forward locally, nationally and around the world. Lawrence is an expert in public health and infectious disease, and emergency preparedness is one of his primary interests.
The podcast, called “Show Me the Science,” is produced by the Office of Medical Public Affairs at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis.
