Providing Masks For The Elderly

Jessica, New York

 

Tell us a little about yourself!

I’m a physical therapist working at Mount Sinai West Hospital in NYC. I like to run and crochet in my spare time. Since I have RA I am immunocompromised But have thankfully recovered from covid 19. I would like to help my community stay safe!

Tell us about your #MakeWaves project.
There are a lot of elderly folks and immigrant families who don’t speak English very well in my community. I would like to provide masks to members of my community who may not have access to these very important resources.

Who inspired you?
The elderly and immigrant families who live in my community. I work in a hospital and see that these populations are being impacted the most. Oftentimes they lack the resources to protect themselves and their loved ones. I would like to help prevent the spread of Covid-19 in these populations.

Your message to the community.
I see a lot in our NYC hospital on the west side - fear, anxiety, frustration, sadness and anger. I also see compassion, dedication and love for our patients, our colleagues, our families, friends. I see everyone doing their part and it gives me the hope and drive to keep coming to work and do whatever I can to help. I hope everyone stays safe and healthy out there, we will beat this!
