COVID-19 Medical Workforce Volunteers Needed

Dear members of the medical community:

As the devastation caused by COVID-19 is felt across the globe, we are witnessing unprecedented challenges to the health care system in the United States.  Some cities and states have felt the impact much harder than others. 

In anticipation that this situation will escalate soon throughout the U.S., Operation Giving Back has devised a plan to collect names of available volunteers, identify their skill sets, and map this information where it may be used for rendering medical assistance in areas of need.

We are witnessing a significant need for health care professionals to staff frontline workforces as well as in the specialty care areas of critical care and emergency medicine.

If you are willing to volunteer in any capacity, please complete the following survey.

Thank you for your willingness to help.
