On Wednesday, April 29, we held a virtual briefing with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Johns Hopkins Medicine, U.C. Davis Health, COVID-19 and the chronic disease community. 68 organizations co-sponsored the briefing, hosted by the Chronic Care Policy Alliance, Global Healthy Living Foundation and the Asthma & Allergy Network. Our experts included, Dr. Georgina Peacock with the CDC, Dr. William Bommer with U.C. Davis Health, and Dr. Vickram Tejwani with Johns Hopkins Medicine. The discussion offered guidance and information as to why COVID-19 puts people with chronic conditions at higher risk and how they can protect themselves and loved ones.
You can view a recording of the webinar below. While we were unable to get to the hundreds of questions submitted answered during the briefing, we will be adding a full FAQ to this page — please check back soon.
