South Carolina Scientists Tackle COVID Misconceptions



In an upcoming digital event on Thursday, September 23rd, scientists at Premier Medical Laboratory Services (PMLS) will talk through a variety of COVID-19 topics ranging from the delta variant to vaccines with a goal of providing information based on science. With misinformation about COVID-19 circulating, these scientists who conduct research at the largest lab in the southeast, PMLS, hope to inform the Carolinas on the best ways to fight the pandemic and answer common questions about COVID-19.

Now, according to DHEC, roughly 50% of South Carolinians are fully vaccinated and much of the US population as a whole remains unsure about their comfort level with vaccinations. With the new Biden Administration mandate for vaccinations, many people are growing even more hesitant. Dr. Brian Krueger and Dr. Stewart Holt hope to provide information and clarity on this topic.

Dr. Brian Krueger is the Chief Scientific Officer of PMLS and is the former Director of Genomic Analysis and Technical Operations for Columbia University Medical Center. He developed the first commercially authorized SARS CoV-2 COVID-19 test. Dr. Stewart Holt is the PMLS Molecular Diagnostic Technical Supervisor with over 25 years of experience as a genetics and diagnostics scientist. The panel will be moderated by healthcare marketing and communications expert, Kathleen Ritz.
