7 P, EASTERN TIME (USA) -- TUESDAY, June 9th, 2020
Speaker: David Herman, MD
Chair, Infection Control, Penn Medicine Princeton Health
“An Up-to-Date Briefing on COVID-19 Infection:
And Dealing with this Pandemic at the Local Level”
Over the past few months, many of us have expanded our virology and infectious disease awareness.
Likewise, epidemiologists, researchers and front-line health care workers have garnered an enhanced
respect from a grateful public. So, it is with special pleasure that the Propellers welcome Infectious
Disease specialist David Herman for a global perspective on our historic pandemic. In particular, he will
discuss how epidemiologists determine the contagiousness of infectious diseases, then delve into the
different types of laboratory testing for SARS-CoV-2, and their attendant implications for controlling
infection spread. He will then delineate changes Penn Medicine Princeton Medical Center has implemented
in response to COVID-19. You may find his facts bracing, but the power of human resilience will also be on
offer. Please note: Zoom Propellers now reach a national (and global) audience, so it’s important to
register: the first 300 people who sign up by June 7th will receive the “Join Meeting Link” on June 8th.


To Receive ZOOM LINK: Registration Required by June 7th via propellers.princetonaaa.org

“COVID-19 Unleashes Telemedicine Innovations: 

 New Paradigms for Delivering Patient Care”

 

The arrival of COVID-19 and the pandemic-generated distancing protocols necessitated by it --- have forced a rapid departure from standard medical practice as we have known it:  indefinite postponements of elective surgeries; cancellations of routine screenings, lab work, dental care; and elimination of face-to-face, hands-on contact with our cherished family physicians.  All replaced, at least for now, by an unfamiliar world of Chat Bot screening tools; algorithm-based query agents like Vicki Vanguard; and remote patient monitoring (RPM) regimens for performing our own self-guided evaluations, under the direction of PA Navigators.  On May 12th, our panel of physicians will take us into this unfolding telehealth world and advise how we can get the most from these evolving technologies, with all their attendant pros & cons.  They will also address how this is transforming their respective medical practices --- and reconfiguring the doctor-patient relationship.

Wherever You Are

Speaker: Andrew Voros, CEO, PrevenTive Conservation, LLC
Topic:  Photocatalysis & Pandemics: Bringing to Light a New Approach

Photocatalytic oxidation is a light-driven process that dismantles organic molecules on treated surfaces. These include human respiratory hazards caused by combustion and those of biologic origin. While standard treatments of chlorine, peroxides and ammonia kill coronavirus on surfaces, the disinfection lasts only until the next person contaminates it. The CDC has recently determined that an optimized oxidizing agent effective on MRSA and other iatrogenic diseases is also effective on COVID-19.  Andrew will discuss these technologies, the science behind them, and the stabilized chlorine dioxide application that his company is making commercially available in the next 30–90 days. 

In keeping with pandemic-generated distancing protocols, PA3 and Quadrangle Club are pleased to bring you our first “online Propeller.” So, fasten your intellectual seat belts, pour a libation and toast to loved ones & learning --- even in the midst of perplexity. 

This video will be posted online as soon as available.  To ensure that you receive notice of that posting, please register here.  For information about Propellers generally, please visit propellers.princetonaaa.org.
