    • Overview

      Since December 2019, one story has been on everyone’s mind and it affects virtually every sector of society—coronavirus.  You can’t go to your social media account, open your local newspaper or turn on your television without seeing a story about this pathogen. This nasty little virus has greatly impacted social gatherings, hospitals, basketball games, our workplaces, and the stock market. Professor Pete Kreckel who is in the trenches at a family practice office, at a community pharmacy and lecturing to Physician Assistant students will provide a general overview of the precautions, symptomatology, and management of this novel virus.
