Resident Physicians Mark Two Years of COVID in NYC

On Tuesday evening, resident physicians of One Brooklyn Health, who are also members of the Committee of Interns and Residents/SEIU Healthcare, gathered outside Brookdale Hospital to mark two years of COVID in NYC. Doctors were joined by OBH nurses and other hospital staff as they reflected on the trauma endured by healthcare workers during the pandemic and the impact of structural inequity on patient care and illness in their communities.

“Because our neighborhoods are mixed with Black and brown individuals and we are filled with essential workers, because we are given less of everything, COVID ripped through the seams of our community,” said Dr. Colleen Achong. See more photos of the event on CIR/SEIU's Twitter feed.
