While there has been a lot of attention given to coastal states and cities that have been affected by COVID-19, the pandemic has affected the entire nation. To discuss how the south has been overwhelmed by COVID-19, we are joined by our special guest, Dr. Mana Lumumba-Kasongo.
Dr. Kasongo is a board-certified emergency physician at the Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital in Albany, Georgia, as well as a nationally published writer. She has spent much of her adult life in the pursuit of both of her passions - medicine and journalism.
After graduating and receiving a Master’s degree from the Columbia School of Journalism, Dr. Kasongo worked as a freelance reporter for many news venues and co-founded the Black Star News, a weekly investigative newspaper in New York City. She later went on to receive her medical degree from Rush Medical School and completed her residency in emergency medicine from New York University.
