"We felt it was important to dive into the unseen mental and emotional toll this public health crisis is having on the people charged with keeping us safe - our frontline health care workers," said Deepti Pahwa, Chief Innovation Officer of Contakt World and co-host of the podcast. "The first half of this episode highlights Dr. Paul Bajwa's first-hand account of what it's like to be an emergency doctor during the pandemic and details the impact of ‘COVID Fatigue' is having on doctors and medical professionals around the country."
"The second part of our episode highlights the heart-wrenching story of Meliza Rangel, a nurse who lost her father due to COVID-19 after her own battle with COVID-19," said Catherine Delcin, co-host of the podcast. "Normally, we focus on the positive cases, hospitalizations and deaths related to the pandemic. We rarely take the time to examine the real and lingering impact that comes from this crisis. We're honored to have Melissa tell her story on our podcast, and we hope by listening to it that others feel some comfort that they aren't alone."

"It's undeniable at this point - we were unprepared for a pandemic. But how can we protect our most valuable assets, medical professionals, in this time of crisis? This week's episode of Contakt World dives into the hot button issues of race, hospital capacities, pandemic plans and the determinants of public health - specifically through the lens of Dr. Paul Bajwa, an emergency physician who's practiced in Florida, Canada and worldwide. Join our hosts Justin Beck, Catherine Delcin and Deepti Pahwa, as they speak with Bajwa, who breaks down the approach emergency physicians take toward treating the disease, and discusses larger implications of how it affects the whole healthcare system in America, Canada and beyond. We also hear from Meliza Rangel, a nurse who tragically lost her father to COVID. As always, we'll talk about how to help our local health departments - and encourage innovation and technology integration - all while remaining empathetic, plus keeping an eye toward health equity for all."
