Thank you to our CRT Team! This month’s Faculty Spotlight honors the dedication and sacrifice of our COMP Faculty members on the Coronavirus Response Team (CRT). Drs Patel, MD, Fuchs PhD and Szurmant, PhD have all spent the last 2 years going above and beyond the call of duty to put our health first and foremost. Spending countless hours running testing, vaccine clinics, monitoring cases, attending meetings and keeping us all updated and informed. All while still maintaining their faculty responsibilities and patient loads. Their efforts are so incredibly appreciated by all of us here at COMP. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all that you do!
