The End Of The Covid Public Health Emergency – What This Means for the Immunocompromised

The U.S. federal government designated May 11, 2023, as the official end of the COVID-19 health emergency​ in the U.S. But the virus is still active and the leading cause of death in the U.S. among the elderly and immunocompromised, so, it’s important to take precautions like getting vaccinated and masking…especially if you have a compromised immune system. Here to talk about the realities of navigating post-pandemic life is returning guest Dr. Dorry Segev, Director at NYU Center for Surgical and Transplant Research along with advocate and caregiver Tracy Shaw, Board Chair, Immune Deficiency Foundation (IDF).

A transplant surgeon at NYU Langone Health who has been studying COVID-19 disease progression in transplant patients, Dr. Dorry Segev has made significant contributions to the field of transplantation, including developing a mathematical model to facilitate a nationwide kidney paired donation program, both in the US and Canada. Dr. Segev’s opinion regarding COVID-19 and monoclonal antibody therapies has often been quoted in major news outlets.
