About Henry Hakamaki

Thank you for checking out my Patreon page!  In case you're unfamiliar with me, I'm a graduate researcher of immunobiology with a research focus of Ebolavirus in a Viral Immunology research group.  
You might know me from my appearances on the David Feldman Show, where I am on the expert panel for our weekly Covid Town Hall meetings or from the new "Ask Henry" segment, where listeners are free to ask me anything.
While I wish that I could keep contributing to the public and scientific discourse without asking anything in return, the Covid crisis has put me under immense financial strain, and frankly I will not make it without support unless I am able to find other avenues for short-term financial relief.
First of all, if you enjoy my appearances on the show, or my twitter presence (such as it is), thank you, the moral support you've given me is already more than I could have hoped for.  However, if you've got some spare chance that you would like to use as a "thank you" for the content and contributions that I provide, it would be unbelievably helpful to me. 
In the spirit of full transparency, every cent that comes from this will be used for furthering my education.  The unexpected crisis of Covid has led me to a severe financial shortfall of several thousand dollars.  While I don't expect this patreon to even remotely cover my temporary shortfall, every bit will help me to continue to contribute to the public scientific discourse and continue my education.

I will also be producing some patreon exclusive content, mostly with a science focus, though I might branch out a bit beyond that going forward.  A more specific description will be available on the membership page.

Thank you again for taking the time to check my Patreon page out.  Even if you're unable to contribute monetarily, I appreciate all the support morally that you can give.
