COVID-19 Testing as an Army Medical Officer

As a medical service officer in the New Hampshire National Guard, I knew it was only a matter of time before I’d be called up to help combat the COVID-19 threat. In those early days of the pandemic, there were many needs in my home state, whether it was setting up alternative care sites, delivering PPE to nursing homes, or assembling food care packages for families. Although I’ve been pursuing a master’s of medical science degree at UVM and anticipate graduating in the summer of 2021, I knew I’d be ready to serve.
