"This was a humbling moment I had to share. This is a picture of three minority female physicians who are working on the front lines of COVID-19 pandemic on Navajo Nation. A generous gentleman from San Francisco donated PPE to my medical relief efforts. A fellow Navajo doctor (middle) contacted me for assistance as her facility was near depletion of PPE gowns. We not only were able to provide caps, surgical masks and face shields directly with no extra time or steps to delay protection to her and co-workers. This is only one example of what we, my medical relief team and United Natives have been able to do." -Dr. Tom

Our NHS students at BASIS Flagstaff know this fact and are taking action to support our Native neighbors who lack adequate heating through firewood collection and distribution.
