Thank You to Dr. Jennifer Koontz, MD
(Aug. 7, 2020) – As we continue to grapple with the COVID pandemic, the amount of information, including changing and confusing information, is often overwhelming. KHA has responded to that problem by providing a daily update and weekly member call focused on distilling hospital information. But Dr. Jennifer Koontz, a practicing physician with Newton Orthopedics and Sports Medicine, also is doing her part to help bring clarity to this area. Every day on her Facebook page, Dr. Koontz provides a COVID update. These updates range from Kansas Department of Health and Environment and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention information to explanations of academic studies to the status of school openings and much more. From my perspective, Dr. Koontz's updates are highly relevant, thoughtful and reliable. Thanks Dr. Koontz for this excellent public service!
