Temple University Health System’s preparations for, and treatment of, patients amidst the coronavirus pandemic continue to be part of the media’s COVID-19 coverage.
- Jason C. Gallagher, PharmD, FCCP, FIDP, FIDSA, BCPS, Clinical Professor and Director of the Postgraduate Year Two Infectious Diseases Residency at the Temple University School of Pharmacy and Clinical Pharmacist Specialist in Infectious Diseases at Temple University Hospital, spoke with Healthline about what to expect when COVID-19 moves from a pandemic phase to an endemic one.
- Dr. Gallagher also spoke with Healthline for a separate article about COVID-19 misinformation, including the recent video that claimed a “detox bath” could remove the COVID-19 vaccines from your body.
- Cornelius Pitts, PharmD, Director of the COVID-19 Vaccine Project for the Lewis Katz School of Medicine at Temple University, and Lauren Kogen, Assistant Professor at the Lew Klein College of Media and Communication at Temple University, crafted an op-ed for the Philadelphia Inquirer describing the reasons why some Philadelphians may remain unvaccinated – for many in the community surrounding Temple, health and economic disparities are larger and more immediate concerns than COVID-19.
- Parth M. Rali, MD, Associate Professor of Thoracic Medicine and Surgery at the Lewis Katz School of Medicine at Temple University and Director of the Temple Pulmonary Embolism Response Team (PERT) Program, participated in a presentation at the CHEST 2021 Annual Meeting which was featured in an ACP Hospitalist article about clots in COVID-19 inpatients.
