Podcast: Dr. Carlos del Rio on COVID-19: data needs, racial disparities and more
As the U.S. COVID-19 pandemic enters its fourth month, both the healthcare system and the public health workforce are stretching to their limits to staff a response. On this episode of the podcast, I'm joined by Dr. Carlos del Rio, infectious disease expert, Emory University professor, and dean of Emory University School of Medicine at Grady Health. In the interview, Dr. del Rio shares his personal experiences as a leader in a hospital during a pandemic, as well as his thoughts on the need for better public health data and infrastructure, and how the spread of COVID-19 is deepening existing racial disparities in the U.S.
