The WMed COVID-19 Response Fund

WMed COVID-19 Response Fund

With the goal of protecting the medical school community and our patients in light of the resurgence of COVID-19 infections, WMed is reinstating The WMed COVID-19 Response Fund. This fund was launched in 2020 as a tangible way for staff, alumni, and friends of WMed to assist the medical school in keeping the students, residents, faculty, staff, clinic patients, and local community members safe from the coronavirus.

As we continue to monitor the changing pandemic and the impact of the Delta variant, we invite you to play a part in helping WMed fight the pandemic in areas of our community with substantial transmission rates.

  • Telehealth services when it is not feasible to see one of our providers in person;
  • Education and training for medical students, faculty, and staff on transmission prevention;
