Two months after the first COVID-19 vaccines were administered, how is the rollout going in the Kansas City area? Join KCMS for an informative webinar on Saturday, February 27, from 8 to 9 a.m. The webinar follows up on our December 5 COVID-19 vaccination webinar.
Among the topics our speakers will address: Where have we succeeded and where do we need to do better? Are we getting the data we need? What efforts are being made to ensure minorities, especially African Americans, receive the vaccine? How is the health and wellness of health care workers and the public being impacted? Among COVID long haulers, what is being observed in cardiac health?
Returning are the three experts from our December vaccine webinar updating us on vaccine progress. Plus, we will hear from a cardiologist about the impact of COVID-19 on the cardiac health of those dealing with long-term effects of the disease:
- Mary Anne Jackson, MD, FAAP, FPIDS, FIDSA, dean of the University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Medicine, professor of pediatrics and an infectious disease specialist
- Kevin Ault, MD, FACOG, professor and specialist division director, Center for Pelvic Pain and Sexual Health at the University of Kansas School of Medicine, who has specialized in development of a vaccine against human papillomavirus (HPV)
- Sara Boyd, MD, infectious disease physician at Saint Luke’s Hospital
- Angel López-Candales, MD, FACC, FASE, cardiologist with Truman Medical Center. Besides cardiovascular disease, he also is knowledgeable about the effects of COVID-19 on Hispanic populations in the Kansas City area.
