Preventive Care & COVID

07/09/2020

Preventative care is among the most important responsibilities of the healthcare system. Whether screening for cancer, monitoring cholesterol to decrease the risk of heart disease, or administering immunizations to prevent deadly infections, preventive medicine saves lives, lowers healthcare costs, and improves population health. With COVID disrupting our ability to distribute these vital services, there is a paramount need to develop new ways of making preventive care available to patients at home. This session brings together physicians, patients, and other experts to discuss the future of preventive care and public health after COVID-19.
