SSM Health Hosting Virtual COVID Forum

(Waupun) SSM Health is hosting a COVID forum on Monday. The roundtable will address fast changing virus updates and next steps. SSM officials say while cases and hospitalizations are starting to decline, deaths are still rising, and community transmission is still high nationwide.

They say vaccinations continue to be a focal point with two new CDC reports showing that people who are up-to-date with their shots have the highest amount of protection against variants. The forum will feature Fond du Lac County Health Officer Kim Mueller, SSM Health St. Agnes Hospital President Katherine Vergos, and SSM Health System Vice President Mo Kharbat.

It will be held at 3:30pm on February 7th. A link will be provided on the websites and social media pages for SSM Health following the event. The forum, scheduled via Zoom, will conclude with participant questions.

To submit questions email [email protected] or at any time during the session through the Q&A function (if participating by Zoom).  To access the live Zoom presentation on January 10, visit
