November 21st marks World COPD day, and on this episode of the Body Show, I am joined by Val Chang of the Hawaii COPD coalition to talk about mask safety, dealing with lung diseas during COVID, and the latest on vaccines for coronavirus.
No one wants to hear that they have been diagnosed with cancer, but especially during the time of coronavirus. What should patients and their loved ones do to be protected? Dr. Jeffrey Killeen, Director of Laboratories, KMC, medical director, oncology service line, Hawaii Pacific Health Medical Group will be on the line talking about what oncologists are doing to help keep patients protected and safe from COVID.
Medical care is complicated enough, but what happens when prescriptions change, diagnoses are different, and bills come that seem incomprehensible? That’s when having a patient navigator might make all the difference. From updated medication cards to explaining bills, these folks know their way around the medical system. Tami Rockholt and Dr. Justin Groode are on the show to share their experiences when patients are put first in healthcare.
