The special will feature interviews with Carlos del Rio, MD Executive Associate Dean, Emory School of Medicine at Grady Health System, and Kimberly Dyan Manning, MD Professor of Medicine at Grady Health System, as they provide helpful and factual information for viewers looking to protect themselves and their families from the pandemic.
