Lori La Bey talks with her friend Dr. Therese Zink, who is a family physician with a 30+ year career that includes caring for patients, teaching, research, and administration. Lori and Therese met years ago at a blogging class and have stayed connected ever since.  Currently Dr. Zink is a Professor at Brown University in Rhode Island and the recipient of a U.S. Fulbright Scholar Award. During COVID she had her feet in 2 worlds.  One caring for patients and the other advocating for a sister and mother in long term care.

Today we will be discussing Dr. Zink’s New Book: COVID Chronicles – How Essential Workers Cope; which we know you will find it as fascinating.
