This week: Caregivers who worked on the front lines of the pandemic

In this episode of “HealthLink on Air,” we’ll hear from four professional caregivers – a physician, a nurse practitioner and two nurses – who battled COVID-19 on the front lines during the height of the pandemic in New York City.

Dr. Christopher Tanski, an assistant professor of emergency medicine at Upstate, oversaw the care of patients at the makeshift hospital at the Javits Convention Center.

Patricia Goodyear is an Upstate nurse practitioner who is a colonel in the Army Reserve. She spent two months deployed to Queens Central Hospital.

And intensive care nurses Emery House and Rachel Carnicelli were among several Upstate nurses who volunteered to assist colleagues at Stony Brook University Hospital on Long Island. Listen this Sunday, September 6 at 6 a.m. and 9 p.m. for "HealthLink on Air."
