Sleep Health Despite It All, and the Race To Get Telehealth Up And Running At A Portland Hospital

From the Show: COVID-19 DAILY
Summary: Habits people want to keep post-lockdown, is the pandemic revealing who your true friends are, as summer begins, the CDC updates social guidelines, COVID-19 is changing how we grieve, and a mask update: how often should you wash it, and what is the best fabric to make one? 

I don't know about you but I feel like I haven't had a good night's sleep in weeks. The endless stream of protest videos and updates and calls to action keeps me scrolling on twitter way past my bedtime. And oh year! Coronavirus is still a threat! Whatever world events are prioritized for you - it's probably keeping you up at night also. Joining us to talk sleep health despite it all is Dr. Patrick Porter, Founder of BrainTap.

Our Healthcare Hero is Lacy Ghannam,  a certified medical assistant at Shriners Hospital for Children in Portland, Oregon where she has been working on implementing a telehealth option to provide care to patients without requiring them to come to the hospital.
