Statement on COVID-19
The COVID-19 pandemic has had a profound impact on healthcare and the physician-patient relationship. What may be less obvious is the threat of the pandemic on the long-term delivery of personalized and accessible medical care.
Hospital physicians, nurses, and other health care workers have been in the forefront of the battle against COVID-19 and have worked valiantly while under great duress and at personal peril.
The Academy of Medicine Of Washington D.C. salutes these modern medical heroes.
