April 9, 2020


As the world responds to COVID-19, increasingly and alarmingly the daily headlines include the risks our healthcare teams and essential services personnel confront in efforts to care for patients and keep our communities safe. Behind these headlines are stories of daily experiences and individual lives. Nurse Jennifer Gil shares her diary about being on the frontlines of COVID-19, about contracting the virus and being isolated from loved ones in a time of immense uncertainty. It’s a powerful reminder that we cannot lose focus on the emotional impact of this illness.
