Dr. Nadine Kronfli's on COVID-19 in provincial prisons.

Dr. Nadine Kronfli is featured on the MUHC website and on CTV News for her research to determine how many incarcerated individuals and correctional employees in select Quebec provincial prisons have SARS-CoV-2 antibodies and understanding the spread of the disease. This research is newly funded by the COVID-19 Immunity Task Force.
