He will cover the latest developments related to COVID-19, including medical treatments and vaccine research.

“We are really excited to be able to do this," Director of UVA’s Medical Center Hour Marcia Day Childress said. “We issued the invitation this past August, and we’re really over the moon about his acceptance.”
