As a data manager at Boston Health Care for the Homeless Program, Leah Shaw, A16, MG17 (MPH), typically uses her background in epidemiology and biostatistics to support HIV and Hepatitis C initiatives. But when the pandemic hit Boston in early March, it was all hands on deck. At Boston Hope, the field hospital set up in part to shelter homeless people who had tested positive for COVID-19, Shaw donned layers of personal protective equipment (PPE) to work with patients, doing everything from making beds to serving meals.
Boston Health Care for the Homeless Program receives HHS funding and has Federal PHS deemed status with respect to certain health or health-related claims, including medical malpractice claims, for itself and its covered individuals.
