On Thursday, the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) issued recommendations for a coordinated, national testing strategy to identify, track and help curtail the spread of COVID-19 in the U.S.

Above all, the AAMC is calling for a clear and transparent national testing strategy with specific standards implemented uniformly in each state.

The Senior Director of the AAMC's Science Policy and Regulatory Counsel, Heather Pierce, talked about the new recommendations - and how they can make a difference - with KRLD's Chris Sommer.
