In The Media

Katherine Menson, D.O.assistant professor in the Division of Pulmonary Disease and Critical Care Medicine, was interviewed for a Seven Days feature story about the struggles of people with long-COVID.

Mary Cushman, M.D., M.Sc., was featured in media coverage of the American Society of Hematology Annual Conference for the presentation, “Social Determinants of Health and Pulmonary Embolism Treatment and Mortality: The Nationwide Inpatient Sample” December 10, 2022.

HealthDay News reported on a study by Neil A. Zakai, M.D., professor of medicine in the Division of Hematology/Oncology, and Mary Cushman, M.D., M.Sc., and colleagues, published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology. The study found that lower levels of high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C) are associated with increased coronary heart disease (CHD) risk in White but not Black adults, and higher levels of HDL-C are not protective for either group.

Louis Polish, M.D., associate professor in the Division of Infectious Disease, participated in a media interview regarding a research letter Dr. Polish co-authored with Pamela Gibson, M.D., about a rare parasitic disease — alveolar echinococcosis (AE) — published in the New England Journal of Medicinehttps://www.nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/NEJMc2210000, November 17, 2022. Dr. Polish’s interview was carried by several publications including:
