Joining the front lines
Whitney Hilton is a nurse from Ogden, Utah working at McKay-Dee Hospital. Like many other medical professionals from the state, she made the trek to Northwell Health’s Long Island Jewish Medical Center in New York to assist on the front line of the Coronavirus. The Long Island Medical Center is one of the country’s hot spots for Covid-19, seeing dozens of deaths a week in April.
You can read about her and the other colleagues from the Intermountain Covid-19 Response team. The team has been sharing blog posts about their experiences in New York.
“This is a humbling experience. I have so much to say but almost too overwhelmed to say it all. New York has been hit HARD,” she wrote. “The people need help, the nurses need help, the doctors need help, everyone needs help. This is crisis mode like I’ve never seen. This is an incredible experience, albeit the hardest thing I’ve ever done AND equally the most rewarding.”
Taylor Swift is no stranger to surprise her fans and outstanding individuals. In March she donated $3000 each to random fans facing financial strugglers from the Coronavirus. She also donated $1 million to relief efforts for the destruction of the recent Nashville tornado.
