A New Phase of Pandemic Reflections, Challenges and Celebrations
The pandemic has turned the health care upside down. And through it all, hospitals and health systems have become better, stronger and more resilient. From hospital leaders and front-line clinicians to supply chain managers and environmental services staff – America’s health systems have delivered quality care through one of the most turbulent times in history.
Last year, AHA’s Living Learning Network honored those working on the front lines of the pandemic by telling their stories in a first-of-its-kind reflection look book called The Pandemic: A Time of Challenges and Champions. The book brings to life the extreme conditions hospitals and health systems have faced in the fight against COVID-19 and celebrates the achievements through short stories and images. It’s become one of the most-read books published by the AHA.
Today, the Living Learning Network is pleased to announce the creation of a new pandemic reflection book. This time, we are asking you to share short stories and images that offer an intimate, behind-the-scenes look at how your organization has addressed the challenges of workforce resilience, public trust, financial instability and health equity during the pandemic and still maintain standards of care.
A Look Back at the COVID-19 Pandemic
The AHA Living Learning Network’s The Pandemic: A Time of Challenges and Champions reveals and honors the extreme conditions hospitals and health systems have faced during COVID-19 and the heroic efforts made by health care workers across the country. It offers an intimate behind-the-scenes look at this remarkable time in history as told by hospitals and health systems through commentaries, stories and images.
A must-read for everyone impacted by COVID-19.
