Doctor Yancy is a dedicated, kind, thoughtful, knowledgeable and compassionate person. I don't know what I would have done without him. We did it together — it is the Class of 2020. My ejection fraction is finally 60.In addition, I would like to say Dr. Yancy took the time to explain the questions I had asked him about the virus and the vaccine that will be available soon. I really want to thank him for that. Many people are very scared of the virus and vaccine. Thank you again for just being you.

Pharmaceutical, device, and biotechnology companies frequently collaborate with basic scientists and physicians within an academic medical center to help advance science and improve patient care.
