Aspiring doctors at UC whose studies were interrupted by the coronavirus have morphed their mission into taking care of people who are especially vulnerable to the pandemic's dangers. The Associated Press, whose story was picked up nationally, looks at UC medical students who started a “COVID-19 match” program. It allows healthy student volunteers to do grocery shopping, pick up prescriptions or perform other errands for high-risk individuals — or just send cards and check in.
The New York Times, the Washington Post, Yahoo UK, the Houston Chronicle, the Toronto Star and US News and World Report were among the publications carrying the story about COVID-19 Match, an effort spearheaded by UC medical students, Cassandra Schoborg and Thomas Daley.
