Message from Dr. Emily Landon

Dear Members of the College Community:

The University of Chicago is fortunate to have leading doctors and medical researchers at University of Chicago Medicine. Their guidance and support are essential resources for the University and College as we act to prevent and slow the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19). 

As we close the Winter Quarter and prepare to embark on Spring Break and remote study for Spring Quarter, the University wanted to share a video message from Assoc. Prof. EmilyLandon, who specializes in infectious disease and serves as medical director of antimicrobial stewardship and infection control at UChicago Medicine. The video is being shared to continue to deepen awareness of the coronavirus and the diligence needed, particularly among those who are young and healthy, to reduce its spread. Whether you remain on campus or will spend time with friends or family, Dr. Landon has helpful information for maintaining health and safety.
