Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service and the Texas Council for Developmental Disabilities, TCDD, will co-host Community Conversations across Texas this summer to gather input from people interested in disability-related issues.
Dr. Rodney Burrow, Associate Director for Primary Care and Director of Medical Affairs at Titus Regional Medical Center, is a long-time resident of Camp County and has been a physician for the past 21 years. During that time, he’s seen nothing like COVID-19. “With the flu, the majority of the time, when someone is diagnosed we can often predict what will happen during the course of their illness. We can’t do that with corona virus. Some people have very mild symptoms, others are very sick and fighting for their life in ICU,” said Dr. Burrow. “I had a friend who was sick and ran a 102-104 degree fever for over two weeks. His two teenage sons had mild symptoms and felt better in just a few days. Most people have mild symptoms but others decline very rapidly, especially seniors and those with other health issues,” he added.
The Northeast Texas Community College Foundation recently received $10,000 from the Trellis Foundation for emergency-related needs. The funds have been used to provide resources to NTCC students adversely affected by recent events. Dr. Ron Clinton, NTCC President (left), and Dr. Jonathan McCullough, NTCC Executive Vice President for Advancement, are pictured accepting the gift. To learn more about how to help NTCC students during this difficult time, please contact McCullough at 903-434-8115 or email@example.com.
