  • Assess co-infection risks and testing strategies during the winter respiratory virus season

  • Address physician wellness in the COVID-19 pandemic

The webinar will be moderated by Kimberly Newell Green, M.D., immediate past president of the San Francisco Marin Medical Society and associate clinical professor at the University of California, San Francisco.

The 90-minute grand rounds webinars are free and open to all interested clinicians. Participants can receive 1.5 AMA PRA Category 1 CreditsTM. Clinicians likely to encounter COVID-19 in their practice settings (e.g., front line physicians, nurse practitioners or physician assistants) are encouraged to join the monthly case-based presentations, which will include expert panel discussions and audience participation.

If you are unable to attend the live webinar, they will be available for on-demand playback at covidroundsca.org.
