Share your story: We want to hear from our health care workers

Our AU Heroes sign

As we approach National Hospital Week from May 10-16, we want to share the stories of Augusta University Health‘s front line health care workers, as well as the many other individuals who keep our hospitals and clinics running.

While health care careers are simultaneously challenging and rewarding, the global COVID-19 pandemic has significantly added to the demands in your lives, both personally and professionally. What do you want people to know about your job? Why did you choose this career? How has your life and work changed during the pandemic?

It takes a special kind of person to join this field, and we encourage doctors, nurses and other direct patient care workers to share their stories. But we also want to hear from those working in other areas of AU Health facilities: laboratories, housekeeping, food service and more. Everyone’s work is vital to the health and safety of our patients and we want to celebrate all the individuals who make AU Health

If you work at AU Health, please share your story here. And if not, find all the ways you can show support to our health care workers.
