NASPGHAN

In a special episode of Bowel Sounds, hosts Dr. Jenn Lee, Dr. Peter Lu, and Dr. Jason Silverman talk about COVID-19 and how this pandemic is impacting the world of pediatric gastroenterology.  We review the latest research on how COVID-19 impacts our patients -- specifically how it impacts children and the digestive tract.  We also discuss the latest guidance from our GI societies, including on precautions to take regarding endoscopy.  As always, the discussion, views, and recommendations in this podcast are the sole responsibility of the hosts and are subject to change over time with advances in the field.
