The United Health Foundation has provided $5 million to the CDC Foundation, Direct Relief and the American Nurses Foundation to support the nation’s health care workforce during the COVID-19 crisis.
The United Health Foundation is partnering with the CDC Foundation and Direct Relief to provide hundreds of thousands of masks, gowns and other protective equipment to frontline health care workers fighting COVID-19 in hard-hit states and community health centers, free clinics and mobile clinics across the country.
"Health care workers are on the leading edge of this pandemic, selflessly caring for patients in need while putting themselves in harm’s way day in and day out. Working with outstanding national partners like the CDC Foundation, Direct Relief and the American Nurses Foundation will help to ensure we are caring for those who care for us by meeting the clinical, emotional and mental health needs of these frontline heroes.”
DR. RICHARD MIGLIORI CHIEF MEDICAL OFFICER, UNITEDHEALTH GROUP
