As the public health crisis surrounding the coronavirus outbreak continues, doctors, nurses and others on the frontlines are putting their health at risk every day, while managing the physical and emotional needs of gravely ill patients.
In more highly affected areas, health care systems are often overwhelmed by a surge in care demand while simultaneously experiencing staffing shortages. Health care workers supporting infected patients often experience concern about the adequacy of their personal protective equipment, and the health and safety of their own families.
The APAF will match donations up to a total of $25,000 for this effort.
APA Foundation will split the funds raised between:
"CopeNYP and Frontline Foods are two inspiring, innovative efforts to help frontline health care workers in the midst of this pandemic,” said Amy Porfiri, M.B.A., interim executive director of APAF. “We are honored to support their work, and grateful to our members who donated to the APAF’s COVID-19 Disaster Relief Fund. It’s efforts like these that show how we will get through this pandemic together.”
Please join us in supporting the mental health needs of frontline providers — today and into the future.
