Antica Partners With Sinai Health Foundation In Launching Podcast On COVID-19 Featuring Leading Health Experts

Toronto, Canada — May 20, 2020  Champions of Sinai: Understanding the COVID-19 Pandemic, a new podcast by Sinai Health Foundation and Antica Productions, that aims to help listeners better understand COVID-19 and its effect on our everyday lives, is now available online.

The podcast provides a comprehensive update on the latest COVID-19 information and features interviews with Sinai Health’s leading medical and research experts.

Host Dr. Howard Ovens, Sinai Health’s long-time Emergency Department physician leader and a veteran of SARS, takes listeners through what they need to know in the ongoing war against COVID-19.

“In this period of great uncertainty, credible and unbiased information is more essential than ever,” said Dr. Ovens. “You need someone you can trust to help you filter and understand it all.”

In each episode, Dr. Ovens sits down with a Sinai Health leader in a different field of specialization to hear how the pandemic is changing how care is provided, from mental health, pregnancy care, critical care and more.

“This is a strange, unsettling, unprecedented time,” said Louis de Melo, Sinai Health Foundation CEO. “We want to contribute to a meaningful dialogue as we all live through the fallout from this pandemic.”

The podcast is recorded remotely from people’s homes and offices. The situation around COVID-19 is evolving quickly and this podcast is not a substitute for personal medical attention or advice.

Champions of Sinai: Understanding the COVID-19 Pandemic is produced by Antica Productions and is available at, as well as on iTunes, GooglePlay and Spotify.
