Why is it important to you to thank front-line health care providers?
Brendan Dolan: After I graduate, I plan on attending medical school and pursuing a career as a physician. Watching our health care workers rise to the challenge over the last year has really inspired myself and many other students with dreams of working in the health care field.
Omar Hassan: I come from an extensive family of physicians and throughout the pandemic, I have witnessed each and every one of them courageously sacrifice so much to deliver patient care to those in need. For me, thanking health care workers is more than just thanking their services, but their resilience and dedication to helping every individual in need in such a dark time.
Grant Ho: My dad is a doctor, and over the past year he has been working incredibly hard whether that’s working weekends or staying late to ensure his patients and community are safe. Saying thank you is the least I can do to show my appreciation for our health care heroes’ bravery, courage and selflessness.
Eric Lian: I was hospitalized at University Hospital last year for an eye infection right at the start of the pandemic, and I witnessed first-hand the sacrifices and hard work our front-line workers are doing to combat the virus. I personally owe them a sincere ‘thank you’ for keeping me healthy and alive.
