Miss the Q&A? Watch the Recording

Two hours, 103 patients, and 113 questions later, I am beyond impressed with my patient community — the way you are handling, coping, managing, sanitizing, laughing, caring, and healing your way through COVID-19. Thank you for logging on on April 23 for our live Zoom Q&A on all things COVID-19 and particularly antibody testing.

This test was evaluated by the University of Washington’s virology department
