Dr. Oren Friedman to Speak at Virtual Ebell Event

Join the Ebell for a conversation with Dr. Oren Friedman on Monday, June 29 at 1 pm on Zoom.

The rising rate of new COVID-19 infections is concerning public health officials who are now considering actions to roll back re-openings. The Ebell of Los Angeles invites the public to attend a timely conversation with Cedars-Sinai clinical pulmonary and critical care physician Dr. Oren Friedman on COVID-19 on Monday, June 29,  at 1 p.m.

Dr. Friedman will speak about his experience as a survivor of COVID-19 and a frontline healthcare worker caring for COVID-19 patients in both New York City and Los Angeles. He will also address our questions about the future of this deadly virus that is still very much part of our daily life.

Dr. Friedman is Associate Director of the cardiac surgery intensive care unit at the Smidt Heart Institute. He came to Cedars-Sinai from New York-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center, where he completed his fellowship training and served as an intensive care specialist.

Laurie Schechter, a Miracle Mile resident who organized the program after hearing Dr. Friedman speak to another group, served as Ebell program chair for the past four years and was recently elected to Vice President of the club.

The talk will be conducted on Monday, June 29 , 2020 at 1 pm via Zoom and non-members are welcome.  Click here to register. The event is free, though donations to the Ebell are always welcome.
