While you’re here also check out the Happy Hour Podcast which features a weekly discussion of the week’s events, and always ends on a happy note. We started the Happy hour as a way to start helping ourselves vent while we shelter in place. We continue to do it weekly to better investigate topics and share our stories. Hopefully we have a good joke or two, but we always love talking politics and with our very own scientist on the show many topics in science and stem.

Today we’re talking to Diana Berrent who was one of the first people in her area to test positive for COVID-19. While scrambling to get medical information and testing, she became an advocate and activist for herself and others. As a self-described “Canary in the COVID Coalmine,” she vowed to amplify her voice as she navigated through this virus odyssey. She documented both her illness and recovery through her Coronavirus Diary, giving the world a glimpse of her struggles and process. While in isolation, Diana launched Survivor Corps, a grassroots solution-based movement to mobilize the sharply increasing number of people affected by COVID-19 to come together, support and participate in the medical and scientific research community efforts and take a more active role in trying to mitigate this pandemic.
