Dr Kwadwo was front line as the first cases hit Ottawa and he shares his experiences and perspectives, about what he saw day to day versus what was being highlighted in the media. His realisation that underlying poor metabolic health was a big driver for the severity of the illness drove him do what he can to get this message out there in the public. While the dust has almost settled on Covid, the PTSD associated with it remains. Mikki and Dr Kwadwo talk about this and more, this week on the podcast.
