When Myron Rolle, a former NFL safety with the Tennessee Titans, volunteered to treat COVID-19 patients as a third-year neurosurgery resident at Harvard Medical School and Massachusetts General Hospital, he felt as prepared as he could be.
“That comes from my football background, where adjustment and adaptation happen on the fly within a game,” Rolle tells CNBC Make It.
