On Call: COVID-19 honoring the stories of frontline health-care workers.
In March 2020, six health-care workers on the frontline of the COVID pandemic join a virtual call to support one who is on the verge of collapse from the strain. Over the upcoming months, the calls continue as they each share personal stories of compassion, courage, heartbreak, frustration and hope.
