Tulane School of Medicine residents and other providers are continuing to deliver healthcare during this fraught time, despite many personal stresses.
To help meet the needs of Tulane providers who are continuing their brave work, Tulane School of Medicine has established the Tulane Healthcare Providers Fund, which was established to meet emergent needs in this and other disasters, crises, or emergency situations .
The fund is flexible enough to respond to the evolving situation. “The needs are changing so quickly,” says Dr. Kendra Harris, MD, MSc, chair of the Department of Radiation Oncology. “We are keeping the fund open-ended to meet needs as they present themselves.”
As the COVID-19 pandemic evolves, so have the needs of our frontline healthcare team. Requests from Tulane doctors, residents and other providers are growing each day for food, scrubs and other essential items as they rise to meet the growing healthcare needs. These heroes are exhausted but remain committed to providing excellent care to all in the heavily impacted New Orleans-area community.
This new fund will help providers on the frontline of a pandemic that has affected so many. “Please consider donating to help healthcare providers. This is an instance in which you may actually need them,” Harris says.
