Supporting health-care workers on the frontlines

To support the province’s health-care workers on the frontlines of the fight to curb COVID-19, McMaster University medical students founded the McMaster Healthcare Students COVID-19 Response Team.

The team consists of more than 130 health-care student volunteers, stepping up to provide much-needed babysitting, pet-care, grocery-run services and other errands for health-care workers in the Waterloo, Hamilton and Niagara regions.

For health-care workers, especially those with young kids, school closures and extra hours at the hospital have made it difficult to care for their children and pets.
