Serving on the front lines of the COVID-19 pandemic is unlike anything we have ever experienced in the Department of Emergency Medicine at McGovern Medical School at UTHealth. Our faculty are serving as a safety net for the entire community, and we need your help.
Donors like you make a true difference in the lives of researchers, students, patients, and caregivers by helping the Department of Emergency Medicine address current needs and prepare for future health challenges. Your gifts provide flexible funding that can be used at a moment’s notice to support promising projects, such as:
- Providing a meal to our hard-working teams on the front line. $50 could contribute a team meal.
- Enhancing our ability to provide emergency telemedicine.
- Helping us develop a database to track availability of resources to ensure EMS providers bring patients to the best-equipped facilities.
- Supporting our participation in COVID-19 research trials and everyday research.
- Supporting education for tomorrow’s leaders.
- Enhancing our ability to provide quality patient care now and every day.
Our emergency medicine faculty are serving at hospitals, as EMS providers, with Memorial Hermann Life Flight, and in so many other ways. They also are working across institutions to address surge capacity and find ways to house more patients.
In addition to addressing COVID-19, these experts are attentive to everyday emergencies – such as accidents, stroke, and heart disease – which do not stop in the midst of a pandemic. And, of course, they continue their innovative research efforts and education of tomorrow’s emergency medicine leaders. To meet all these needs – especially those related to COVID-19 – every available emergency medicine specialist is needed at this time. These dedicated, selfless heroes deserve our support.
Thank you for caring for our heroes and the communities they serve. With your help, the Department of Emergency Medicine will continue fighting COVID-19 and offering life-saving care, world-class education, and groundbreaking research.
