Grace under pressure doesn’t begin to describe it. Over the past few months, often amid the most difficult of circumstances, Cleveland Clinic caregivers on the front lines of the COVID-19 outbreak around the world have risen to unprecedented challenges to put patients first. We wish we had space to introduce you to all of these extraordinary professionals. For now, meet just a few of the caregivers whose selfless dedication gives all of us hope for better days ahead.
