Community discussion with Sameer H. Ladha, lawyer bioethicist and COVID-19 survivor.
As-Salāmu ‘Alaykum / Peace be upon you!
When Sameer Ladha, Lecturer and Deputy Academic Director of the M.S. in Bioethics program at Columbia University, was diagnosed with COVID-19 earlier this year, he almost couldn’t believe it.
He’d been washing his hands and practicing social distancing. But what first presented as a tickle in the throat akin to allergies quickly transformed into a mild cough, chest tightness, and body aches for several weeks. It was confirmed as a positive diagnosis through a test.
Join us for a personal narrative of Sameer’s battle with COVID-19, the disease progression, and what he has ultimately learned from the experience.
