No-Panic Guide Live: ER Doc Glenn Fernandez

Thursday, April 2, 2020, 3:00pm - 3:30pm

Emergency rooms are a vital part of the front-line response to the COVID-19 epidemic. On this week’s No-Panic Guide Live, Dr. Glenn Fernandez took us through a day in the life of an ER doctor at this unprecedented time, and shared how he decompresses after a long shift. Our audience joined host Bruce A. Lemon Jr. for a candid conversation with Fernandez, and received answers to their questions on how to stay safe during this tumultuous time. 

Glenn Fernandez is an ER doctor who currently works at several hospitals throughout the Los Angeles area. He earned his medical degree at the Tulane University School of Medicine in New Orleans, Louisiana. He completed his residency in Emergency Medicine at Louisiana State University in Shreveport. He moved from the south to Los Angeles to work as a singer and actor and also holds a Masters in Fine Arts in Vocal Performance from CalArts.
