Saint Luke’s Health System is committed to the health and safety of our patients, visitors, and staff. Effective Nov. 1, 2021, full COVID-19 vaccination is a condition of employment for all SLHS employees.

Laurent Duvernay-Tardif has returned to the Kansas City Chiefs roster a year after making the decision to opt of the 2020 NFL season.

Instead of joining his teammates to try to run it back for a second Super Bowl appearance, Duvernay-Tardif suited up for a different team.

He stayed home in his native Canada to use his medical degree and fight the COVID-19 crisis. He worked as an orderly at a nursing home in Montreal during his year away from football. He said he wanted any role he could find that helped him fight the pandemic.

Dr. Andrew Schlachter, pulmonologist and critical care physician at Saint Luke's, talks to FOX4 about Duvernay-Tardif returning to play with the Chiefs this season.
