Newswise — PHILADELPHIA (March 27, 2020) - COVID-19 is sweeping across the country with the number of cases rising dramatically. It’s been two weeks since Penn Nursing’s Alison Buttenheim, PhD, a public health researcher and behavioral epidemiologist and Penn Medicine’s Carolyn Cannuscio, ScD, a social epidemiologist, joined Amplify Nursing to discuss the coronavirus. Since a lot has occurred in that time, they are back with an update to discuss where we are at in this pandemic, how it has been handled locally and nationally so far, and what is still to come. Listen here or wherever you listen to podcasts. 

Amplify Nursing, was created and is hosted by Marion Leary, RN, MSN, Penn Nursing’s Director of Innovation, and Angelarosa DiDonato, DNP. It features nurses who are leading the way in nursing science, policy, and innovation. The podcast is made possible by the Krista and Rich Pinola Fund for Innovation in Nursing. New episodes will be available every other Wednesday through iTunes, Spotify, GooglePlay, and more.
