Over the next four weeks we will highlight and recognize four COVID-19 heroes. Hear about their impact through MDL’s LinkedIn, Instagram, and Facebook posts.
MedDocLive’s first COVID-19 Scholarship Winner:
Dr. Adrienne Cobb from Loyola University Medical Center
During the pandemic, Dr. Cobb was a fourth year general surgery resident. Dr. Cobb was pulled off her designated services and re-purposed to Trauma or ICU coverage. Dr. Cobb was specifically placed on the COVID-19 procedure team doing arterial lines, central lines, and dialysis access for COVID patients. Armed with adequate PPE, she placed over 30 lines. Thank you for your dedication.
"While my stress is heightened during this time, working with these patients has made me extremely grateful for my health and that of my family. I am also so impressed with our nursing staff who care for these patients over long shifts and often are the only people with them when they pass away. Seeing this disease process up close will change me forever. I grieve all the losses and look forward to better times."
