VA nurses recently received an unexpected gift, thanks to Nike. The multinational footwear and apparel manufacturer donated nearly 3,800 pairs of Air Zoom Pulse shoes to VHA nurses on the frontlines battling COVID-19.
Since the start of the pandemic, over 1,000 VA staff have volunteered for more than 3,700 deployments to support Veterans and civilians in the most hard-hit areas of the country in response to COVID-19.
Ashley Henson and Shelia McCraney, skilled respiratory therapists with the Kansas City VA medical center, deployed to Chicago to care for COVID positive Veterans. They spent their two weeks on the night shift.
