TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 22, 2020 PHYSICIANS: If your practice needs PPE, please contact us at SDCMS@SDCMS.org . As you may recall, SDCMS recently in partnership with the California Medical Association, Altais, State of California and the Governor’s Office, held a hugely successful PPE distribution event at SDCCU Stadium to small and medium sized physician practices. Almost 800 local practices received 2 months of free PPE, worth $3.8 million, over 2 days. We have a limited amount of PPE we may be able to provide to your practice if you qualify. The University of California Cooperative Extension is creating a statewide educational campaign for healthcare professionals, medical providers, community organizations, and decision–makers in response to how COVID–19 affects the LGBTQ+ population given that this community is proving to be at higher risk for severe health complications from a COVID–19 infection. They have created a needs assessment survey in order to better inform their educational campaign. The survey is intended to gather data from LGBTQ+ individuals, community serving organizations and healthcare providers. We encourage you to help guide their survey. CLICK HERE to participate.
