November Nerd Nite on the Rocks

Cody Aguirre

As most of you may or may not know, there was a pandemic a couple of years ago called RONA, or more commonly, COVID-19. This was a SARS grade virus that would infect its host and sometimes kill them. With this new virus came a need for research, testing, surveillance, a vaccine, the whole shebang! The crazy amount of information that was learned and revised again and again within months was insurmountable. That’s where Cody Aguirre, a Native Texan, came in, because from 2020-2022 researching and testing COVID-19 was his life, and he’s here to share that with y’all.
