The Children’s Hospital-Acquired Thrombosis (CHAT) Study


Dr. Anthony Fauci praises HTRS Member Lisa Baumann Kreuziger for her work on national COVID-19 panel    

Dr. Lisa Baumann Kreuziger, MD, MS, Medical Director at the Versiti Blood Center of Wisconsin, was praised in a personal letter of gratitude from White House advisor and director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, Dr. Anthony Fauci.

A hematology expert, Dr. Baumann Kreuziger is serving on a national COVID-19 panel that recommends the best treatment options for people with the virus.  The guidelines have been developed to inform clinicians how to care for patients with COVID-19, she says. 

"You responded in an exceptional way and worked tirelessly to develop an outstanding initial set of guidelines in two weeks," wrote Dr. Fauci.  "In the first week after their release on April 21, there were more than 1 million page views, highlighting the importance of your work.  Thank you again for your contributions to this panel, for your outstanding work in caring for patients and for all the additional ways you are helping to respond to this pandemic during this most extraordinary time."

Says Dr. Baumann Kreuziger, "I was honored and humbled to be part of a group of experts to establish treatment recommendations.  The guidelines have provided a review of evidence on which doctors can treat patients and develop research."
