Episode 37: Cindy Nguyen - A COVID-19 Experience
By now you’ve heard all about COVID-19—the insidious virus responsible for the global pandemic—from its severe symptoms to the demographics of those at risk. The statistics are frightening, but they’re not as relatable as a personal account. After contracting the virus in early March, Cindy Nguyen, a medical student at LSU Health New Orleans and graduate from the College of Science and the College of Humanities and Social Sciences, joined us for an interview—even with lingering COVID-19 effects. In this episode she describes the testing process she went through along with her symptoms, like water tasting sweet, and how she’s recovering. We also catch-up on her medical school program, her exciting internship and ways this experience is influencing the physician she aspires to become.
