Twitter Chat Wrap-Up
Ramping Up Your Lab’s COVID-19 Testing Capabilities: Best Practices & Lessons Learned

On March 31, 9pm EST, I took over the @Pathologists Twitter handle to host a Twitter chat about the challenges that pathologists are facing (and overcoming) as more laboratories implement COVID-19 diagnostic testing amidst a global pandemic.

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

Below are some highlights from the hour-long discussion.
