Doctors Supporting Doctors Since 1903
Founded in 1903, the Linn County Medical Society promotes professional growth for physicians, and quality health care for the community.
The LCMS is an independent forum for physician discussion. We provide leadership, education, and representation for physicians as they deliver health care to the community. We exist to serve our members by facilitating physician collegiality, developing solutions to problems, and enhancing the public trust in physicians.
We had an in-depth panel discussion with Linn County Providers on the front line of COVID-19 on May 21, 2020. Click below to view the recording.
Health care workers are on the front lines of the COVID-19 pandemic, facing risk of exposure, infection and even death. Their work is central to efforts to save lives and reduce further transmission.
Many thousands of healthcare workers have already been sickened by the virus. In order to prevent future cases, we need to learn more about what is occurring in a range of health care settings, from hospitals and nursing homes to patient homes and prisons. And more information is needed about the challenges of preventing exposures to all types of health care workers, from nurses and physicians to laundry workers and security guards.
The George Washington University Milken Institute School of Public Health is launching a web-based Health Care Worker COVID-19 Survey open to all health care workers who have been exposed to or infected by the COVID-19 virus. The announcement of the study is here.
