By joining your colleagues across the medical community in Physicians United, a pilot leadership affinity group of Capital Area United Way, your gift will go towards the Unsung Heroes Fund.*
The funds raised will aid the hardworking but often unrecognized employees such as Environment Services Staff (EVS), Patient Care Assistants (PCA), etc. that play an integral role in the hospitals, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic. Let's rally together to show appreciation for our Unsung Heroes.
“Our colleagues in the hospital such as the housekeeper and PCAs are putting themselves at as much risk as physicians and nurses but without the same recognition, glamour, or wages. They are the unsung heroes.”
Dr. Venkat Banda, Medical Director of the Mid City COVID-19 Surge Facility
*Funds collected will go towards the Unsung Heroes Fund. After this pandemic is over the fund will transition to aid the ALICE (Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed) Population in a broader array of health and human services, as determined by the Physicians United Executive Committee. The ALICE population are those working residents that are struggling to make ends meet, have little or no savings and are one emergency away from falling into poverty.
