On this episode of the podcast, we speak with two Northwell leaders who have led the effort to create and deploy a 24/7 consultation and support service to Ukraine. This real-time, doctor-to-doctor platform is now offering health care workers a vital resource, particularly for those displaced by the ongoing hostilities in the country. Eric Cioe-Pena, MD, director of Northwell's Center for Global Health, and Jonathan Berkowitz, MD, medical director for the Center for Emergency Medicine, discuss:

  • Northwell's Ukraine Relief Fund
  • The benefits of telemedicine in a conflict
  • Adapting existing infrastructure for Ukraine
  • Reactions from doctors in Ukraine and Northwell
  • How technology is driving Global Health forward
