This 90 minute webinar offers a physician's perspective on the state of the coronavirus pandemic, with updates on epidemiology and preventive guidelines, emerging data on the pathomechanisms and complications of COVID-19 infection, and emerging treatments including medications and vaccines. We will discuss the tension between relaxing social distancing and preventing a resurgence of infections, and grapple with alternative and conventional perspectives on prevention and treatment. We will review red flags for seeking higher level of care, and explore ways that herbalists can collaborate with other healthcare providers in their communities to promote well-being. Participants will be invited to submit questions in advance and also have opportunities to engage in discussion during the presentation via the chat room.
