I feel so fortunate to have found you and YLE. It brings me hope that there is a path to honest scientific study.

I see no better representative of science-based truth to our nation than you.

Congratulations! You definitely belong in the White House conversations.

I am a Family Doctor with a background in Public Health. I read your newsletter every morning and make clinical decisions and recommendations based on the data that you present so beautifully. Keep going! Your timely synthesis and careful evaluation of complex and sometimes disparate data is very much appreciated!

Thanks for all that you do, Katelyn. Seeing you at the White House is much needed reassurance that science is still important. Also, may we see the new shoes?

Thanks for your persistent and high quality work. You’ve become my metric for assessing Covid truths and falsehoods. And you have promoted thoughtful discussion of COVID issue. Keep it up. You are making a difference! We can beat this disease with determined and fair leadership from folks like you.

You really earned this, every step of the way, parenting and teaching while staying up late to analyze data that isn't even your primary research area and then sending it out to our community in coherent, digestible form. You've been a real lifeline, thank you!

Now I'm hoping you get to contribute research in gun violence and safety too.

Well-deserved honor, and an honor for the White House to have you as part of the discussion.

You possess both the knowledge and communication skills that are so important. Thank you for sharing your work with us in a timely, intelligent fashion.

Hope you reminded them that there are some of us out here too medically vulnerable to protect ourselves in public transport, medical offices/dentists, and government buildings. They need to help us with air quality and re-introducing masks at least in essential settings. They can send very strong messaging and information without mandating, though some settings (healthcare) really do need mandates as it should not be optional. Also, hope you told them we're not stupid. If they got clear about the message, many more people would actually get it. Oh, oh and also .... LONG COVID.
