Across the nation, local leaders are leading the charge against COVID-19 in their communities. However, Miami Mayor Francis X. Suarez was tasked not only with leading his community during this time, but also overcoming his own case of COVID-19. As part of our ongoing coverage of COVID-19, with our friends at Florida Blue Medicare, Growing Bolder touches base with Mayor Suarez about his personal experience with COVID-19 and his city’s efforts to flatten the curve. Plus, he shares his experience with donating his plasma, becoming one of the nation’s first and certainly most high-profile convalescent plasma donors.
