Guest Host Mauro Chies looks at Alberta’s innovative COVID-19 testing program

Alberta has truly been a leader when it comes to COVID-19 testing, thanks to the innovative work Alberta Precision Laboratories (APL) has done to provide testing across the province as the pandemic has evolved.

With most people being vaccinated, COVID-19 testing may not play as large of a role as it did earlier in the pandemic, but continues to play a critical role in monitoring how it evolves and spreads in our community.

Mauro Chies, Vice President of Clinical Support Services and Cancer Care Alberta, is our guest host this week. Joining him are three members of APL’s medical-scientific team who led the development of the COVID-19 testing program:

  • Dr. Carolyn O’Hara, Interim Chief Medical Laboratory Officer, Alberta Precision Laboratories
  • Dr. Will Stokes, Medical Microbiologist, Alberta Precision Laboratories
  • Dr. Nathan Zelyas, Medical Microbiologist, Alberta Precision Laboratories
