Laura Gerdes Long, health care attorney with Danna McKitrick, P.C., conducted several live radio interviews regarding the tragic situation involving a female student athlete at the University of Missouri (Mizzou), an alleged sexual assault, her suicide, and the role of the university in events as they transpired before and after the student’s death. Long also posted Mizzou Story Highlights Tension Between Doctor-Patient Privilege and Protecting the Patient.

In the blog post and her interviews as a guest with Charlie Brennan on KMOX NewsRadio 1120 and Frank Cusumano on CBS Sports Radio 920, Long discussed the issue she believes is being overlooked but is at the heart of the matter: doctor-patient privilege.

According to Long,

The story highlights the care that must be taken to protect a patient’s ability to speak candidly and honestly to his or her medical provider without fear that such information will be divulged to anyone else without the patient’s permission.
