Chapter ML, Waverly

Chapter ML recently had a driveway social gathering. JoAn Headington, an ML sister, has been serving on a committee of health care professionals at the National level. As a prominent health care leader, she is part of a team of professionals who participate in regular telephone conversations with the American Hospital Association, at which one of the speakers was Dr. Fauci, Director of the National Institute of Allergies and Infectious Diseases. As an expert who has given our country periodic updates via national media, Dr. Fauci conducts his research based on the scientific aspect of the COVID virus. He said that this is the only pathogen with this wide range of symptoms, and that we as a population must be humble and flexible as data appears that may appear differently than expected. Dr. Fauci indicated that it is likely a vaccine will be ready in early 2021, and so we still need to have protocols in place to limit the spread of the virus. He told this team that we WILL get through this. Chapter ML is fortunate to have such first hand information as shared by their sister JoAn! Sisters in Iowa and beyond, we WILL get through this and return to meeting together regularly as we have done previously!
