In Season 2 of "The Road to a Vaccine," host Lisa Ling interviews scientists, global health leaders and other experts on the COVID-19 front lines to reveal the latest medical advances and collaborations to create a coronavirus vaccine—and hopefully a return to a world without the pandemic.
As we head into fall, how is COVID-19 testing going? Lisa Ling speaks to experts, including Ann Lee, co-founder, with actor Sean Penn, of the nonprofit CORE, to get the latest updates on testing efforts and contact tracing across America.
With a global pandemic still raging in parts of the world, Medtronic is helping stretched-thin clinicians work quickly, safely, and efficiently with the help of remote technology.
When the COVID-19 crisis was hitting its apex in New York earlier this year, doctors needed a way to remotely monitor the vital signs of patients admitted to a large convention center that had been converted into a field hospital.
So, a team from Medtronic quickly installed several of the company’s technologies to create a system that allowed about 10 clinicians to remotely monitor about 400 patients at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center.
Getting such an operation up and running normally takes weeks or months … Medtronic did it over a weekend.
Many things are changing in our society, and the phrase ‘new normal’ seems to have become the norm. Large in-person agricultural shows, which often take place in the fall, following the summer’s harvest, have been a mainstay of the farming year for decades.
Nearly every piece of Cowans Ford Hydroelectric Station has been upgraded to run smoothly for 50 more years
From the littlest electrical switches to rotors that weigh 300 tons, Duke Energy employees recently completed a multi-year renovation at Cowans Ford Hydroelectric Station to update nearly every part of the plant.
COVID-19 has accelerated the adoption of technologies and behaviors, like a distributed workforce, that can be widely beneficial. However, we also have seen significant setbacks, especially for historically marginalized communities, exacerbating existing inequities in our society.

Growing up, I was always fascinated with gadgets. I oftentimes found myself following in my father’s footsteps, always tinkering with science kits, robotics kits, computers, etc. This love and affinity for technology was the reason I chose to a pursue an engineering degree as an undergraduate – a Bachelor of Science degree in Electrical Engineering.
