A Review of a Rarely Used (in the US) Medication for COVID

Tuesday, January 19, 2021 - 7:40pm to 8:45pm

An old drug has been studied and widely used internationally for treatment of COVID: Ivermectin, the same medication we know for scabies and even heartworm in dogs. This workshop will review the more than 30 studies on this medication as used for COVID. Participants will be given an opportunity to ask questions about the research throughout the online conversation.

This conversation is for knowledge-sharing within the Co-op community, but is open to everyone. No personal medical advice will be given. Presenter is Alexis Lieberman, MD, a Co-op member and a community pediatrician who has been researching the topic. Please note: As with all workshops, Weavers Way is not responsible for the views of the presenter.
