Healthcare Worker Memorial

The count of U.S. healthcare workers who have died of COVID-19 keeps increasing without any sign of slowing. Documented healthcare worker deaths are likely a fraction of actual healthcare worker deats. Worldwide, 1 in 7 cases of COVID-19 is a healthcare worker.

We can do better. We must do better.

In Person Memorial

On October 11, 2020, we gathered a small group of healthcare workers and family in Tucson to livestream a memorial for the healthcare workers who had died of COVID-19 in the U.S. as of that date.

We collected as many names & photos as we could from the many different people who have been tracking the dead. The list is incomplete. It is be imperfect. We are imperfect. We likely mispronounced some of these names, and we beg your forgiveness.

We had 1141 names and 945 photos. More names than we could read in the hour.

The live program begins at about 10 minutes in.
