Dr. Doug Pays a Visit

The Grade 2/3 Class had a very special visitor yesterday. Dr. Doug is a Grade 2/3 class daddy and cardiologist at Humber River Hospital. He came to visit to answer questions about COVID 19 and what it’s like to be a doctor in these uniquely challenging times. The children prepared their questions in advance and we all learned a lot of new things like, how a virus behaves (it needs our cells to replicate itself), what a ‘burn rate’ is (how quickly PPE is being used up in the hospital every day) and why creating a vaccine takes so much time. A big thank you to Dr. Doug for sharing his morning with us and for taking care of so many people when they need help.
