Karl Simon, a Physician Assistant from Houston,  Helps COVID Patients in Southern Colorado Jail 

As a medical professional in the Houston, Texas area, Karl Anthony Simon has been called upon time and again to assist a diverse group of patients. As a Physician Assistant (PA-C), Anthony has worked in several specialty clinics as well as in hospital settings. He is adept at identifying specific patient needs, then developing care plans to support those needs. Anthony is a graduate of the University of Texas Medical Branch-Galveston, where he stood out within his graduating class for his academic prowess and his research paper entitled “Lead Poisoning in Galveston Children.” Anthony Simon is a native of Houston and currently lives and works in the community of Sugar Land. He is a healthcare provider for a prominent men’s health clinic and provides care for established and new patients alike. 

As the coronavirus pandemic descended upon communities around the world, many emergency responses were needed to both contain the spread of the virus and to provide care for at-risk populations. One such population is that of prison inmates. Prison inmates live in close proximity to one another; these conditions do not allow for social distancing or self-isolation of infected individuals. Many inmates have other health conditions that complicate the treatment of COVID-19. 

Anthony Simon’s expertise in the medical field was needed when COVID-19 arrived in Texas. He was appointed as part of a COVID-19 rapid response team – a team that deployed to a maximum-security prison in Houston, Texas. As part of the team, Anthony was responsible for monitoring the health and wellness of over 200 inmates, including both acute and chronic medical conditions. Inmates were carefully screened for the symptoms of the coronavirus infection and triaged as necessary. The team’s work in the prison allowed prison authorities to combat the spread of this potentially deadly infection, and Anthony Simon was instrumental in the success of the initiative.
