Sustaining Healthcare: Innovation, Education, and Local Donations
SHIELD (Sustaining Healthcare: Innovation, Education, and Local Donations) is a grassroots initiative founded by physicians, medical and PA students, and alumni to support Boston Medical Center during the COVID-19 pandemic. The group was originally formed to boost advocacy and awareness around personal protective equipment (PPE) for the hospital. After weeks of hard work, making incredible strides in sourcing critical PPE for our frontline staff SHIELD has evolved to focus our efforts on additional projects to support BMC frontline providers.
SHIELD continues to work to unite friends, colleagues and family to help raise significant funds for the hospital. Your support today will make an immediate and substantial impact on BMC’s providers and patients. More so, we have the chance for an even bigger outcome: A very generous donor has agreed to match donations up to $50,000 worth of donations! We hope you will take advantage of this amazing opportunity to double your impact and to play an essential role in protecting our health care workers and patients.
As the largest safety-net hospital in New England and one that cares primarily for vulnerable and underserved populations, Boston Medical Center plays a critical leading role in fighting the COVID-19 pandemic. The hospital was the first in the Boston area to see a surge of cases because many of our patients face chronic health issues and socioeconomic obstacles that place them at a higher risk of contracting COVID-19 and developing complications from this disease.
Thank you for your support!
