Dr. Ramar discussed the survey results with two panelists:  Dr. Indira Gurubhagavatula, chair of the AASM COVID-19 Task Force, and Dr. Thomas Speer, chair of the AASM Advocacy Committee. Topics of discussion included advocacy priorities and recent updates to the AASM’s COVID-19 resources. The webinar concluded with a moderated Q&A session to respond to questions submitted by attendees.
