Board-certified family physician Jim Reynolds addressed,

  • What are the best ways to protect yourself and your family from Covid?
  • What situations are particularly high risk?
  • Is it safe to fly or travel on a bus?
  • How does one judge degree of safety for business, social, and athletic events?

His talk covered testing, transmission, “Long COVID,” new treatments, and how the different vaccinations stack up. Also who is at higher risk for hospitalization and death.

Dr. Reynolds has practiced outpatient medicine since 1986. A graduate of Emory University and the Medical College of Georgia, he completed a three-year family medicine residency in Anderson, South Carolina. His career included 16 years providing healthcare for the poor at the Knox County Health Department’s Indigent Care Program. More recently he cared for the city employees of Morristown. He retired in 2017 but continues to practice at the Free Medical Clinic of Oak Ridge one day a week.

Dr. Reynolds gave a presentation at TSK’s January 2017 meeting, entitled “Would the U.S. medal in a health care Olympics?” in which he compared and contrasted the structure and performance of medical insurance and services of the U.S. and other developed countries.
