As COVID-19 continues to impact every aspect of our daily lives, the importance of our community service work has become more apparent than ever before. Patients with COPD, ILD, severe asthma, lung disease, and compromised lungs are plagued on a daily basis with concerns for their health. More than that, they are plagued with complete isolation.

Knowing that so many people – our people – are feeling alone and scared made us ask ourselves, “How can we help these patients?”

That’s when we decided to start providing urgent community service microgrants for clinicians who want to help at-risk populations. These grants provide $1,000 to $2,500 to get their ideas up and running across the country.
