Charting Pediatrics

Dec 2, 2020

Join us for our bi-weekly COVID-19 Virtual Provider Town Hall series featuring updates from Children's Infectious Diseases team and live Q&A:  - our next Town Hall is on Thursday, December 3, 2020 from 6-7:30p.m. MST.

With COVID-19 cases surging across the United States and Europe we hope this episode is a timely refresher for any of our pediatric colleagues who are being called into service to care for adult patients. 

In this rebroadcast of S3:E49, we have a case discussion around functional and high-yield adult medicine topics that might be useful for pediatricians helping to care for adult patients in the middle of the pandemic.

You can go back and listen to our previous coverage on the COVID-19 Pandemic on Season 3 & 4 of the podcast.

Today we are fortunate to be joined by Dr. Aaron Manning and Dr. Steven Humphrey.

Steven is a pediatric hospitalist at Children’s Hospital Colorado and Instructor of Pediatrics at the University of Colorado School of Medicine.

Aaron is also a pediatric hospitalist at Children’s Colorado and is Assistant Professor of Hospital Medicine at the University of Colorado School of Medicine.
