We, the Class Representatives of the CUNY School of Medicine/Sophie Davis Student Government, have taken note that many medical students are doing their best to help out their local hospitals, and we would like to get actively involved in aiding our physicians and other healthcare workers at SBH, a Level One Trauma Center, to safely deal with this crisis. SBH is our major teaching hospital and very close to the hearts of the students, faculty, alumni, and community.
We would like to embark on a GoFundMe campaign to raise money for PPE, testing supplies, ventilators, hazard pay, and any other needs for SBH. With the help of students, faculty, alumni, and parents, we believe that we can really make a difference through our contributions.
Please be aware that "TIP GOFUNDME SERVICES" is not a necessary fee, and if you would like to avoid this tip, select "Other" and enter $0.00 as the amount.
