    As you know, I write the ongoing patient facing column for SIDM. This month's column discusses the risks of avoiding seeing your doctor due to Fear of COVID, especially if you have any health concerns. Whether you're a physician or a patient advocate, please share it with your patients. There are helpful tips for patients and insightful interviews with experts. Here is the link.
