An inside view of the COVID-19 fight
In September 2021, we joined hospital staff for a few days to document the reality of treating COVID-19 patients across the hospital system. These are the first two chapters in our ongoing series, “UK HealthCare: Voices from the Front Lines,” highlighting stories and perspectives from our front line workers who have been caring for our sickest COVID-19 patients since March 2020.
Allison Perry, UK Public Relations & Strategic Communications
Larry Treadway, UK HealthCare Brand Strategy & Marketing
