It’s undeniable at this point – we were unprepared for a pandemic. But how can we protect our most valuable assets, medical professionals, in this time of crisis? This week’s episode of Contakt World dives into the hot button issues of race, hospital capacities, pandemic plans and the determinants of public health – specifically through the lens of Dr. Paul Bajwa, an emergency physician who’s practiced in Florida and also Canada. Join our hosts Justin Beck, Catherine Delcin and Deepti Pahwa, as they speak with Bajwa, who breaks down the approach emergency physicians take toward treating the disease, and discusses larger implications of how it affects the whole healthcare system in America, Canada and beyond. We also hear from Meliza Rangel, a nurse who tragically lost her father to COVID. As always, we’ll talk about how to help our local health departments – and encourage innovation and technology integration – all while remaining empathetic, plus keeping an eye toward health equity for all.
