TBT – Dr. Richard Fralick’s Reflections: From HIV/AIDs to COVID-19

Welcome back Rounds Table Listeners!

Today we are back with a very special new series – Throwback Thursdays!

Here, we revisit a conversation with Dr. Richard Fralick, a hospitalist at Sunnybrook and public health specialist during the HIV/AIDS pandemic in the 1980s.

How have our public health policies changed since then? What role do public health specialists play in outbreaks? How can our past healthcare policies inform future strategies?

Join us as we address this and more during today’s episode.
