Note: This AHCJ webcast aired before one of the speakers, Howard Bauchner, M.D., was placed on administrative leave pending an investigation by the American Medical Association’s Journal Oversight Committee into a controversial JAMA podcast about structural racism in medicine. On June 1, 2021, he tendered his resignation effective June 30, 2021. The AHCJ webcast focused on looking forward about health care stories in coming months. AHCJ believes this webcast still contains valuable COVID-19 information for colleagues.

What health issues have been set aside during the pandemic, what are the ramifications of that and how will patients and doctors catch up?
