LHC - Hello and welcome to a very special edition of, "Let's Make a Health Connection." I'm James from Local Health Connect, and we're talking to Jennifer Barber about a very special promotion called "Front-Line to the Front of the Line." Hi Jennifer.
JB - Hi James! How are you today?
LHC - I'm doing great, how about you?
JB - Really good and I just want to thank you so much for putting this together and allowing us time to talk about not only Local Health Connect but most importantly a new program called "Front-Line to the Front of the Line" or FL2FL. Would you like me to just jump right in here?
LHC - Yeah, go ahead and get started. I've got a list of questions, of course, but you know, we'll just kind of feed off each other and see what happens.
JB - Perfect, so this is something I'm really passionate about right now, and I'll tell you why I have so much passion. For 16 years I worked in a very busy emergency department here in Vancouver Washington. Because I have so many years experience working with Front-Line medical professionals, my heart is breaking right now for them. And what they're experiencing is they're caring day in and day out for people who are sick with covid and other things in these busy emergency departments. And also medical units and as well as urgent care clinics.
