Twitter Chat Wrap-Up
Diagnosing COVID-19: What Pathologists Need to Know Now

On March 10, 9pm EST, I took over the @Pathologists Twitter handle to host a Twitter chat about what pathologists need to know about their role in diagnosing and treating patients suspected to have contracted COVID-19.

I was joined by expert guests Bobbi Pritt, MD, FCAP (@ParasiteGal) and Michael Mina, MD, PhD (@michaelmina_lab). The CAP’s Advocacy office (@capdcadvocacy) participated to address any regulatory issues.

Below are some highlights from the hour-long discussion. Also, be sure to scroll to the bottom of this blog to view additional resources related to COVID-19.
