Show Notes

Ever wondered what happens to the sample after that swab invades your nasal passages? On this week’s episode of the QC Pod, we meet Kathy Fauntleroy, Microbiology Laboratory Supervisor at New York Presbyterian Hospital by day–and MFA in Creative Nonfiction student by night. In addition to being at the forefront of the fight against COVID19, she is also a Queens College English graduate, and is now enrolled in our MFA program to study Creative Writing. She discusses her work as a microbiologist, and her return to school to follow her non-medical passions. Host Jason Tougaw (English).
