Episode 34: Update on MIS-C and COVID in Children with Dr. Anita Patel
In episode three, I had Dr. Anita Patel on the show to share her invaluable knowledge on MISC. She graciously returned to answer all of my listener’s questions related to the Covid-19 Delta Variant. There has been so much chatter about this on social media and the news, so I’m grateful that I got to pick the brain of an expert on the topic. From treatments used to the results of the vaccine study, she fills us in on the facts that you’ve been wanting.
Dr. Patel is a pediatric critical care doctor, assistant professor, and NIH funded researcher at Children’s National Hospital in addition to being a 500 hour RYT yoga teacher. She uses her social media to show the human side of academic medicine that she so lacked as a medical trainee with a focus on motherhood in medicine, her IVF journey, and the raw difficulties of finding balance in this chaos.
