This issue of the Forum is primarily dedicated to the rapidly-developing coronavirus pandemic. It includes a double dose of messages from NCMB President Bryant A. Murphy, MD, both on topics related to COVID-19, a summary of NCMB actions to date related to the pandemic, and a column on the potential for COVID-19 to intensify burnout in frontline clinicians. Oh, and there will be three open seats for physicians on the North Carolina Medical Board come Nov. 1 - throw your hat into the ring.
