PATIENT CARE HEROES EXISTS TO ENSURE STORIES ARE TOLD,
CONNECT HERO AND SURVIVOR NEEDS TO OUR COMMUNITY, AND
FORGE COLLABORATIONS TO PROTECT OUR HEROES IN PATIENT CARE
What started as a simple social media post to tell the story of a physician hero who ultimately died as a result of caring for her patients with COVID-19, ultimately launched a national conversation about all those in healthcare who risk their lives going to work and providing care for their neighbors.
Today, the Patient Care Heroes platform ensures these heroes' impact and sacrifices are known, their families, friends and colleagues have access to resources to heal and that collaboration is facilitated to spark meaningful innovation to best protect our heroes moving forward. In order to ensure these heroes' sacrifices are known and to build conversation around the impact each and everyone of these healthcare workers has had, Patient Care Heroes set the goal of receiving 350 healthcare hero LifeWeb submissions by August 31, 2021 of the healthcare workers who have been lost since March 2020. Click the buttons below to share a story of a Hero, donate to the cause through a Partner non-profit, and sign up for our newsletter to stay up to date on our full platform launch and ways you can help serve this community.
Goal: 350 Stories
SOME HEROES WEAR CAPES.
SOME WEAR UNIFORMS. THEY
ALL RISK THEIR LIVES TO
SERVE THEIR NEIGHBORS AND
OUR HEROES WEAR SCRUBS
