Let’s Talk: COVID Treatment Options
Mercy Urgent Care is pleased to announce that Family Nurse Practitioner Grace Barnwell was a panelist for the “Let’s Talk: COVID Treatment Options” online event hosted by the Buncombe County Health Department on Thursday, March 31.
FNP Barnwell was one of four panelists discussing COVID treatment options available in Buncombe County. As therapeutic treatments are still a new intervention in the fight against severe illness due to COVID-19, this event was an opportunity for local medical providers to learn more about or discuss treatment options, eligibility requirements, and where to access treatments in the community.
Other panelists included Dr. Stephanie Call, Chair of Internal Medicine for MAHEC; Dr. Chris Parsons, Medical Director for Pardee Center for Infectious Diseases; and (Facilitator) Dr. Jennifer Mullendore, Buncombe County Medical Director.
The event was live streamed in English on the Buncombe County Government Facebook page, in Spanish on the Buncombe County Health and Human Services page, and in American Sign Language on both pages. Audience questions were fielded during the event.
