We all have questions about what is really happening on the front lines of medicine right now. Sherith Israel is lucky to have some experts who will talk about what they are seeing, working on, and planning for. Interviewed by our hosts, Dr. Jonathan Graf and Rabbi Jessica Zimmerman Graf, these online panel discussions offer informative opportunities to hear from and ask questions of doctors from our community.
