Hey everyone, we got a special episode here. My friend Dr. Lina Miyakawa is with us today live from New York City. She’s a pulmonary ICU specialist and is treating coronavirus cases in Mt. Sinai hospital in Manhattan.
She went to NYU for her undergraduate degree, received her medical degree from John A. Burns School of Medicine at University of Hawaii, completed her Internal Medicine residency training at Santa Clara Valley Medical Center, affiliated with Stanford University in California and her specialty fellowship training in Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine at Mount Sinai Beth Israel in New York City.
Let’s get straight to the episode - I think it’s really interesting to get to hear this inside scoop from someone dealing with this on the front lines. She’s been working nonstop treating patients and spared a few minutes to talk with me. Just to give you an idea of what we’re dealing with, she had to cancel our interview yesterday because she lost another patient.
If you’re new to this show make sure to start back at episode 1. I’ve spent the last 2 years finding the brightest minds in the world to interview and people continually report how life changing the information presented has been for them. Here’s Dr. Lina.
