COVID-19 PHILADELPHIA RESOURCES
Updated: Apr 13
We've all had plenty of people telling us their thoughts and opinions during this uncertain time (myself included) - which is necessary and appreciated.
Instead of trying to do more of the same, when there are much better and more educated people out there doing a wonderful job, I thought I'd share some resources. Many of these were shared with me by my medical school, PCOM, so most of the content credit goes to them (with a few of my own additions)
If you have any resources (website, phone number, etc) that you think could be useful, please contact me or comment below!
