We thank Rachel Libby, M.D. ’16, an emergency medicine physician, and Linda Nied Prieto, M.D. ’90, an internal medicine physician. Both are Miller School alumnae working on the front lines at Emory Decatur Hospital in Decatur, GA during the COVID-19 pandemic. They met when Dr. Libby spotted Dr. Prieto’s Miami pin.

Dr. Libby says of working in emergency medicine: “I am so proud of this profession and the courage my colleagues have shown. Also, I am humbled by all the support we’ve received.” Dr. Prieto adds: “This is what we do – we take care of those who are sick and in need of our expertise. Although this is the worse epidemic I have been through, I also worked in the hospital during the HIV/AIDS crisis of the early 90s and H1N1 in 2009. Stay safe!”
