Heroes, right here.
Heroes come in all shapes and sizes, from all walks of life, and are right here in our communities, tackling one of the greatest challenges modern healthcare has ever faced. Read, watch and listen to their stories.
The phlebotomist who, after a long shift at the hospital, spends her free time cooking and delivering hot meals to seniors and truck drivers. A physical therapy assistant plucked from her normal duties and redeployed to screen her friends and neighbors in a tent outside the ER.
