Mass General Hospital’s Emergency Response Fund was created in an effort to provide healthcare workers with necessary medical supplies, transportation assistance, dependent care, temporary housing and other important resources to help them stay healthy and safe during the COVID-19 crisis.
In addition to providing timely information updates from Massachusetts General healthcare experts, Beasley Media Group Boston radio station on-air personalities will be joined by celebrities and influencers over the coming weeks to offer messages of hope and appreciation for the hospital staff on the front lines. Listeners are invited to join in and share their support at any of the radio station websites/Healthcare-Heroes.
