The group calls itself IMPACT, which stands for Illinois Medical Professionals Action Collaborative Team. Its members have been writing op-eds, circulating petitions and starting social media campaigns, all in an effort to spread the word about the latest scientific findings and the best preventative measures for COVID-19. Other physicians across the country have joined their effort, and the website includes the group’s initiatives, along with regular blog posts and other resources, like how to thank health care workers.
About Shikha Jain, MD FACP
I am a practicing, board-certified hematology/oncology physician in Chicago. I speak on topics ranging from the impact of social media on healthcare, how physicians can utilize social media, how to write Op-eds in the medical world, gender equity and barriers to career advancement, and topics in GI oncology and immunotherapy. My goal is to explain complicated topics in simple terms. I also enjoy writing and you can find some of my writing on this site. I am a mother to three amazing kids and married to a gastroenterologist. I look forward to connecting with you.
