New project launched to reduce COVID-19 infection among emergency room workers
Dr. David Talan, professor of emergency medicine and medicine in the Division of Infectious Diseases at the UCLA medical school will lead the trial with co-principal investigator Dr. Nicholas Mohr, vice chair for research in the Department of Emergency Medicine at the University of Iowa. Talan is an attending physician in the Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center emergency department. Dr. William Mower, professor of emergency medicine at UCLA's Geffen School, will be the site's principal investigator and biostatistician. "We will attempt to answer the two most important questions for emergency providers: 'What is my risk of becoming infected with COVID-19 by doing my job?' and 'What are the ways that the risk can be lessened?'" Talan said.
