YouTube and other social media vastly exceed television news as the information source for most Americans. Interviews and Q/A with social media personalities with large followers is the best way to talk to Americans. Doctors who want to answer questions from these modern journalists will have the opportunity. There will be dozens of doctors doing this together and you are free to speak as little or as much as you like.

Video: 4-8 pm

You are invited to record a ~2-5 minute video speaking about the coronavirus, the lockdown, and your advice/opinion. This will be sent to you as a link for you to share with your friends, family, patients, local press, or for any other purpose.

Tentative Congressional Meetings: 4-6 pm

Physicians & Congresspersons can discuss any healthcare related topic.
