What we hear about COVID-19 changes daily, even hourly. To learn about the current trends of the disease and understand the perspective of the healthcare community, we are sitting down – virtually, of course – with oncology healthcare experts in the DFW metroplex. We will discuss health and safety concerns for cancer patients and survivors and other immunocompromised individuals as our surrounding community plans for reopening. Our experts will tell us what they are learning and hearing, what precautions we should be taking, the impact the disease is taking on our daily lives, and answer your questions. Ahead of our town hall discussion, we have prepared this list of resources.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, people with COVID-19 have experienced a wide range of symptoms. This list is not exhaustive, and you should contact your healthcare provider about any symptoms that are severe or concerning to you.
