lunch break

Bridge Michigan’s monthly Lunch Break series continued Wednesday with a discussion about COVID-19, including how many risk management measures are necessary as the virus moves from a pandemic to endemic.


If you missed Wednesday’s chat, you can watch it on-demand below.

Bridge reporters Robin Erb and Mike Wilkinson were joined by Dr. Mark Hamed, medical director for Sanilac, Huron, Lapeer, and Tuscola counties and medical director of emergency medicine at McKenzie Health System, and Dr. Matthew Sims, director of infectious diseases research at Beaumont Health and professor of medicine at Oakland University.

Bridge’s Lunch Break monthly series focuses on timely topics facing our state. Previous discussions have included examinations tracking Michigan’s economic progress, how COVID has impacted Michigan’s K-12 students, Michigan’s new redistricting maps, Michigan’s eldercare crisis, and COVID mandates and K-12 education.
