Dr. Karissa Culbreath is a clinical microbiologist, Assistant Professor of Pathology at University of New Mexico School of Medicine, author of Daddy’s Little Girl and is the Medical Director of Infectious Diseases at Tricore Reference Laboratories .

From Albuquerque Journal‘s interview with Dr. Karissa Culbreath:

Is there anything surprising to you in the way the pandemic has played out?

“Surprising is a difficult word. I don’t think it’s hugely surprising. I think there’s been many successes here in the U.S., but it’s clear there’s been a lot of missteps. But mostly I’m really proud of the way the scientific community has risen to the challenge. And the way that the scientific community is being highlighted and spotlighted. That there’s a Dr. Fauci action figure. … Dr. Kizzmekia S. Corbett, a Black woman involved in the development of the vaccine. These names as they start to become household names now, I think it creates a space and opportunity where kids get a Fauci doll for Christmas, along with their poster of LeBron James.”
