April 21, 2021
The 2019-20 coronavirus pandemic is an ongoing pandemic of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-COV-2). As providers of care to adults, we want to do whatever we can to insure their health and well-being. During the COVID-19 epidemic, our skills, operations, and knowledge are being put to the test. At University of Chicago Medicine, we want to help you through our knowledge sharing systems. To that end, we are hosting an ECHO-Chicago special session, COVID-19 for Adult Populations led by infectious disease specialists, Dr. Daniel Johnson and Dr. Stephen Schrantz.
