Personal Protective Equipment for Frontline Health Care Professionals

About My Campaign

We are raising funds to help front line healthcare workers stay safe and able to keep treating New Yorkers. The Coronavirus outbreak has been devastating to NYC hospitals and the demand and use of personal protective equipment has exhausted the hospital reserves. As both my wife and I are physicians, we know the importance of protecting nurses, respiratory therapists and physicians while caring for this vulnerable population.

Together, we will support NYU Langone Health, one of the major medical centers in the 5 boroughs that is leading the effort to fight this once-in a lifetime pandemic.

I invite you to join me in raising funds for this important reason.

Remember, we fight for you. It is time for you to join us!
