SUPPORT FOR THE COVID CARE FORCE™
“What excites me about the COVID Care Force™ is how it’s going to positively impact rural communities in our state,” said Dr. Lee Norman, Secretary for the Kansas Department of Health and Environment. “We need to be prepared when the surge of COVID-19 comes our way, and the COVID Care Force™ is going to be part of our critical hospital staffing across the state of Kansas.”
"I admire the passion behind the COVID Care Force™, and applaud the group of volunteer leaders pulling this initiative together. I know firsthand that this crisis is going to need people from every part of the healthcare system and from all walks of life to stop this pandemic in its tracks. My recommendation to civilians in the healthcare industry: Join the COVID Care Force™! It's going to take all of us, working together, to defeat this pandemic."
