This past year has been so difficult and sharing our experiences with each other will give inspiration to continue through these difficult months that still lie ahead. To keep our Sights on Health, we have asked our participants to answer three simple questions in regards to what their experience has been like in the past year, living and working through the Covid-19 pandemic. We are grateful to our Healthcare workers and their continual perseverance and strength! Thank you and keep up the good work!
