Medicine and Science of COVID-19: Treatment and Diagnosis

A panel discussion featuring North Park University faculty, staff, and alumni

April 22, 11:40 am–12:40 pm CST

A recent New York Times article highlighted the unpredictable nature of the COVID-19 disease and its devastating impact on the medical system from a front-line perspective. Many concerned medical professionals and scientists have written articles like this to address misinformation that has spread almost as rapidly as the virus itself. As an institution of higher learning committed to the pursuit of truth and reason, for the next two weeks, a number of North Park University faculty, staff, and alumni will convene as panelists to present their understanding of COVID-19 through the lens of their disciplines. Join our panels of experienced medical practitioners and experts in diagnostics, epidemiology, emergency management, and microbiology as we examine some of the most pertinent questions related to the COVID-19 pandemic. All students, faculty, and staff are invited to attend and bring questions! Please see the detailed schedule below.

Real Stories From the Front Lines: Adam Johnson, MD, biology alum, hospitalist at VA hospital in Seattle, WA
The Evolution of COVID-19: Drew Rholl, PhD, biology professor
Diagnostics for COVID-19: Jakob Ondrey, M.S., biology alum, Infectious Disease Lab Researcher at Lurie Children’s Hospital; Brie Lippert, biology alum, Sales at Randox, developer of multiplex COVID test
