On the Air: Guest: Dr. David Figurski
Donna O’Donnell Figurski
Dr. David Figurski, retired professor of microbiology, talks about his brain injury and COVID-19
I don’t often publicize my radio show on the Brain Injury Radio Network, but one of our brain injury survivors is knowledgeable about the COVID-19 pandemic, which I’m sure is on your mind. Like me, you probably have lots of questions.
My guest on the April 19th show was my husband, Dr. David Figurski. David has been living with several physical disabilities since January 2005, when he had a brain hemorrhage, but, fortunately, after three brain surgeries in two weeks, he was unaffected cognitively. For 35 years, including eight years after his traumatic brain injury, David was a professor in the Department of Microbiology & Immunology at Columbia University, where he also had a research lab. David has done research on bacteria and viruses for 45 years. Unsurprisingly, he has been very interested in the new human coronavirus and the global pandemic it has caused.
My 80-minute show was live on April 19th, but it was recorded and can now be listened to at any time as a podcast. My interview of David has two parts. From 9:30 to 49:50, David and I talk about life with his brain injury. From 49:50 to the end, David and I discuss the COVID-19 pandemic.
