Thank you for your support, we're so close to hitting our goal!

September 18, 2020

We would like to extend a warm thank you to all our donors who have supported us over the last few months.  We are so close to hitting our campaign goal of $10,000! We have already made great strides in these unprecedented times, but we need your support more than ever to help us meet our goal.

 

With your help, physicians from the Department of Emergency Medicine at McGovern Medical School at UTHealth have made an impact both locally and nationally as we face this pandemic together. Our experts have had the opportunity to educate the public about COVID-19 through appearances on news channels, such as ABC World News and KTRK-TV Channel 13.  In addition, our emergency medicine physicians created instructional videos that were shared with physicians across the nation to provide tips for addressing situations related to COVID-19 patients.

 

Your generosity has helped make all this and more possible.  Thank you for your support and compassion during this difficult time.

$6,000 raised and counting!

Thanks to the generous donations from the Houston community and around the country, the Department of Emergency Medicine at McGovern Medical School at UTHealth is beginning enrollment in a nationwide research study that explores treatments for COVID-19. The ORCHID trial will compare hydroxychloroquine (an anti-malaria drug) to a placebo for the treatment of COVID-19.

 

Along with a team of experts, Dr. Henry Wang is leading another clinical initiative that uses plasma from COVID-19 survivors to treat critically ill patients with the virus. As one of the most novel programs of its kind across the nation, the plasma investigation is at the forefront of cutting-edge research to defeat COVID-19. It will help protect our Houston community and have lasting effects on how COVID-19 is treated globally.

 

Thank you again for helping to make a difference!
