About the Webinar

In the continued fight against COVID-19, we have seen how important monoclonal antibodies and other therapeutics are in helping prevent serious illness. As viral variants arise and spread, it is increasingly critical that health care providers have the latest treatment information at their fingertips. Dr. Anderson will share updates on available COVID-19 therapeutics including medication efficacy, new administration routes and novel treatments in the pipeline, fee reimbursement resources, and provider and patient tools and fact sheets. Dr. Anderson and HRSA representatives will also be available for a Q&A to answer providers’ questions about these important COVID-19 therapies.
