Local ICUs are again struggling with a COVID surge. See here for more information.
In collaboration with the owner of the Nitty Gritty (an undergraduate alumnus of the department) and a key contact on ICU nursing staff at each of our four local hospitals (UW, VA, Meriter, St. Mary's) -- the Department of Psychology is supporting the hospitals' frontline staff who are bearing the brunt of this pandemic.
Below is a running list of deliveries:
