Hail To The Frontline

Michigan Medicine is seeing a plateau in the numbers of new COVID-19 cases, which is great news. But their experts say it’s still vital that people follow the state’s public health rules in order to prevent a second spike in COVID-19 cases. Michigan Medicine is a hub of some of the world’s most advanced clinical care and research in the fight against COVID-19.

Michigan Medicine is still treating patients with non-COVID afflictions, the Emergency Rooms are still open at both the adult and C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital, the Rogel Cancer Center is still treating those who need cancer treatments, The Frankel Cardiovascular Center is still helping those with heart issues.

Our researchers are trying to find the origins of COVID-19, how it can be treated, and how we might be able to prepare for a pandemic in the future.

When you give to the COVID-19 Philanthropic Fund, you can designate how you want the money used, whether it’s for research or for employees or patient care. You can do that in the comment field if you make an online gift or by attaching a note if you send a check.

Michigan Medicine doctors, staff and nurses raised their hands when called upon to redeploy if needed to areas within the hospital that required additional staffing. Fighting this pandemic is a marathon, not a sprint. We have ongoing patient care and research needs that you can support through the COVID-19 Philanthropic Fund.

You can find out more about ways to give at

hailtothefrontline.com.

Funds from this campaign will go to support patient care, the wellness and care of those working on the frontlines and throughout the hospital and clinics, and to support research that is being done in our labs now and in the near future in the fight against Covid-19 and the preparedness for future pandemics
