Coping with Covid anxiety in a post-pandemic world: A conversation with Dr. Lucy McBride

A smiling, light- skinned woman with dark hair pulled back in a ponytail, sitting on a bench in a park with green trees and sunlit grass, wearing an orange shirt and a white doctor's coat with a blue stethoscope slung over her shoulder. I talked with Dr. Lucy McBride about Covid anxiety, how it’s impacted us all and what we can do about it. We also talked about how family practitioners can make their practices more accessible for autistic patients–and all patients–by thinking outside the box. #AutisticHealthAccessProject

Dr. Lucy McBride is a practicing internal medicine physician in Washington DC who has been seeing patients for over 20 years. During the pandemic, she came to prominence for talking openly about the importance of addressing mental and physical health together. She is the author of the newsletter, Are You Okay? and the podcast Beyond the Prescription. She is helping to redefine health as more than our cholesterol and weight but really about awareness, acceptance and agency for us as patients.
