Dr. Gianrico Farrugia
President and CEO,
Mayo Clinic is a lead institution in a Food and Drug Administration initiative to get convalescent plasma therapy to COVID-19 patients. Farrugia was part of panel of healthcare leaders that met with the Trump administration’s Coronavirus Task Force early on to discuss the industry’s response to the pandemic. Mayo Clinic and Farrugia came under criticism in late April when Vice President Mike Pence visited patients at the Rochester hospital without wearing a face mask.
