Esther Chung, MD, a dermatology resident, is among the many Washington University School of Medicine and Barnes-Jewish Hospital doctors who temporarily stopped seeing patients when their clinics were shuttered to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Sidelined by these closures, Dr. Chung wanted to help her colleagues serving on the frontline.
