Today In The Upper Cumberland: COVID Medicine

This week improve your knowledge of COVID-19 with Dr. Brent Staton & Dr. Ty Webb

The next phase of our fight against COVID-19 is set to begin. A gradual reopening of the Tennessee economy – Monday with restaurants, Wednesday with retail establishments. Governor Bill Lee emphasized Friday the economic benefits of reopening the economy, but he quickly pointed out if Tennesseans don’t continue to learn and focus about COVID-19, and practice the things that we know that will work, we’ll find ourselves right in the middle of more economic hardship. So lets focus on the learning as we bring aboard Dr. Brent Staton and Dr. Ty Webb with the Cumberland Center for Healthcare Innovation.

Today In The Upper Cumberland airs each weekend as a way to introduce you to interesting people and subjects of interest to our community. Catch the show each Saturday morning at 6 on Rock 93-7, 106-9 Kicks Country, and at 8 on Lite Rock 95.9.
