Hometown Doctor Returns to Help Local Community in Macon and Middle Georgia With New COVID-19 Testing Site
For Paula Harmon, MD., a pediatric otolaryngologist, head and neck surgeon at Pediatric Ear, Nose and Throat of Atlanta and Medical Director of Hearing Loss at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, the mission to give back to her hometown of Macon and middle Georgia was always a plan it was just a question of when and how. Enter COVID-19. Since the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic nearly 7 MILLION people in the US have tested positive for COVID-19. In Georgia, the lead public health agency DPH has reported more than 272,000 confirmed cases of COVID-19 and at least 5733 deaths.
On the front-lines, Dr. Harmon’s youngest patient was a 2-week-old fighting for her young life in the ICU. Dr. Harmon recalls that case hitting her hard, “these aren’t the stories being told on the news, but it’s this heart wrenching reality that we as physicians and hospital staff see too often and know inflicts the community.”
After a conversation with her longtime friend Ana Everett, PhD., CEO of SolutionsAe, an Atlanta based social entrepreneurial firm, recounting the frustrating experience of trying to get a COVID-19 test, Dr. Harmon, President and CEO of the medical company Top Dog Solutions knew how she would pay it forward in Macon and middle Georgia…Top Dog Solutions COVID-19 Testing Site. For decades, Dr. Harmon’s family has been intricately involved in numerous business, economic development, and community improvement projects. Together with Dr. Everett, Dr. Harmon wants to use Top Dog Solutions COVID-19 Testing Site to serve a strong social purpose.
