CAP Creates COVID-19 Resource Center – The Most Important Coronavirus Information All in One Place

As communities and nations work together to confront the COVID-19 pandemic, it is incumbent upon medical professionals to stay abreast of ever-changing information. “Members know that we are prepared and committed to providing solutions and resources that can help address the unprecedented challenges arising from the current pandemic,” says CAP’s Chief Executive Officer Sarah Scher. “We will not let them down.” To this end, CAP has created an online information center to help.
