The Pathologist magazine, a pathology-themed magazine, published the second in its series of "pandemic diaries" featuring first-person stories from pathologists and laboratory medicine professionals around the globe, describing how their labs and departments have adapted to the COVID-19 pandemic. George Netto, M.D., Robert and Ruth Anderson Endowed Chair, UAB Pathology, is featured in this second installment of the series. An excerpt:

"Our department faculty and staff have been proactive and nimble in our response to COVID-19. Pathologists and laboratory medicine professionals, both here at UAB and nationally, have been at the forefront of fighting this pandemic. We are used to working behind the scenes – but now, our colleagues have stepped up to tackle COVID-19." ... "Our ability to scale up to high-throughput testing has allowed us to support rural and affiliate hospitals throughout the state; we have faculty working full-time in more than half a dozen smaller hospitals, meeting a crucial need.
