healthcare workers freebies

Like so many of you reading this article — I have a soft spot for healthcare workers. Whenever I’ve fallen ill throughout my life they have treated me with kindness and respect. Personally, I have several friends and family members who selflessly serve others as a healthcare worker.

Because of the fantastic healthcare I have had all throughout my life, I hate reading about how many healthcare doctors and workers are struggling with PTSD and burnout  — and COVID-19 has made the problem worse. Even more troubling is that because hospitals are losing revenue during the COVID-19 pandemic — millions of healthcare workers are losing their jobs.

With the pandemic still in “Nightmare Mode,” the absolute least that we can do for these heroes is to offer the following discounts and freebies. So, if you’re in the healthcare industry, please take advantage of these deals. Or, if you know someone who is a healthcare worker — please pass this list along to them.
