Community Webinar: “What to Consider When Living with Hypertension, Diabetes or Asthma During the COVID-19 Pandemic” - Shared screen with speaker view
can you address the issue New York Times reported that people with asthma are faring better than people with other risk factors such as obesity?
We sure will, Coby! It will be discussed during Dr. Gupta's portion of the talk.
Can someone explain why loss of sense and smell is a common symptom? Does this have to do with encephalopathy caused by the virus?
Hello Drs. FOR TYPE I & II DIABETES: is there a way to determine if there is an association between nCOV in people of color and diabetes especially due to inequity in the US health system? Or is more data still needed? Thank you all!
Hi Lauren and Nharimann, I'll make sure to address this question with Drs. Kandula and Gupta during our Q&A segment. Thank you for your question.
will we have a link to share the presentation on social media sites?
The expectation is that there will be a second surge in the fall/winter. I am concerned for my asthmatic school-age child. Will it be safe to send him to school or should I push for continued virtual schooling? What options do I have?
Hi Erika, YES! This session is being recorded. We can send the link at the conclusion of the webinar

Hi Laura, thank you for your question. Dr. Gupta will address many asthma concerns during her talk and I will ensure that she gets to your question
