Protect healthcare workers as they fight to save lives
When COVID-19 hit Suffolk County, our doctors, nurses and staff courageously stepped
forward to treat critically ill, highly contagious, patients.
Thanks to alumni, friends, faculty, staff and students, we were able to provide the
protection our healthcare heroes needed so they could do their jobs without having
to put their own lives at risk.
We need to continue to protect our frontline healthcare workers from COVID-19 and
other infectious diseases. Additional philanthropic support will ensure that they
never have to endanger their health and safety while they work to save others’ lives.
