As we mark the 1-Year Anniversary of COVID-19 as a global pandemic we invited Valleywise Health’s Dr. Frank LoVecchio to have a candid Zoom conversation with AzPHA members about the course of the pandemic from the perspective of an emergency department physician.

You can view his presentation about Dr. LoVecchio’s experiences over the past year as he reflects about clinical developments and muses about the policy choices made by our elected and appointed officials.
