COVID-19 Support for Healthcare Heroes

COVID-19 Support for Healthcare Heroes

Now, more than ever, healthcare workers need encouragement and support. 

Healthcare staff across the nation are filling the physical, emotional, spiritual and psychological needs of COVID patients – even, in some cases, providing end-of-life support. Despite long, exhausting work hours, healthcare workers continue to meet the pandemic’s challenges with commitment and determination.
