Together Counts - A Safer Thanksgiving with Dr. Nick Kman
We're rolling out a new series of videos aimed at helping our Central Ohio community better understand all the information floating around about COVID-19.

Each week we'll be asking local physicians to share their expertise on a certain topic surrounding COVID-19 clearly and concisely.

This week, we have OSU ER physician, Dr. Nick Kman, to further explain how to stay safe this Thanksgiving and that there is a light at the end of this tunnel. Check it out!

Please share this video with your patients, family, friends, or colleagues and help us spread the word!

Take a moment to read and share this letter with friends, family, and colleagues. What we do together counts more than ever.
