San Mateo County is responsible for providing necessary medical care to its medically indigent population. For more than 20 years, Dr. Hassid has provided infection control services for San Mateo Medical Center (SMMC). Dr. Hassid has been a key leader in our response and defense during the COVID-19 pandemic.
