We Get the Latest on Covid-19 from Lee Health


As the new coronavirus continues to spread we're doing our best to keep you well informed with accurate and up to date information. On today's show we're focusing in on Lee County with Dr. Douglas Brust, he is an infectious diseases specialist with Lee Health; and Lisa Sgarlata, Chief Patient Care Officer for Lee Health, and who is running the Incident Command Center for the COVID-19 situation.


Dr. Brust normally spends much of his time working with HIV patients, but he has a deep history in the world of infectious diseases, including a 2-year fellowship at the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases at the National Institutes of Health, under the mentorship of Dr. Anthony Fauci.
