Iowa physicians are on the forefront of our state’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic. It is incredibly disappointing to see comments attributed to Senator Ernst implying that the Iowa medical community is doing anything other than continuing to uphold its long track record of providing the highest quality of care and rising to the evolving challenges of the pandemic with the greatest of integrity.
The Iowa Medical Society stands firmly behind Iowa physicians and clinicians. We will continue to ensure the concerns of our healthcare community are at the forefront as we work to educate policymakers. Now is not the time to spread mistruths and distrust. We must work together to keep Iowans safe and healthy.
