Senator Krueger's Virtual Town Hall: Navigating the Healthcare System in the Time of COVID-19

On ThursdayJuly 23th from 7:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m., join Senator Liz Krueger and Dr. Peter Steel, Director of Clinical Services for the Department of Emergency Medicine, New York Presbyterian Hospital-Weill Cornell, to talk about navigating the healthcare system. Many of us remain unsure where, when, and how to safely access health care in the time of COVID-19.

In his role as Director of Clinical Services, Dr. Steel oversees all operational, quality, patient safety, and patient experience initiatives; leads grant-funded EM-based research; and serves as a leader on multiple New York-Presbyterian (NYP) Hospital projects. With this scope of expertise, Dr. Steel will guide us through the healthcare system, providing information on: use of telehealth visits and how to prepare, when to schedule an in-office appointment with your doctor instead, what types of COVID-19 tests are available and where you can go for testing, and how to know when you should go to the emergency room.

You will have the option to view the event online through Facebook or to listen by calling in. Please note that you do not need a Facebook account or profile to view the event. Due to there being a limited number of participants who can call in, we ask that you please view the event through Facebook if you have internet access.
