Stories in Care: An Oral History of COVID-19

"Stories in Care," Cooper’s riveting and emotional video series highlighting the COVID-19 experiences of its frontline workers, is now a Telly Awards-winning web series. In season two, hear more recollections from Dr. Nitin Puri, Nurse Nina Gutierrez, Dr. Philip Dellinger, Critical Care Fellow Dr. Kimberly Chavez, and Advanced Practice Nurse Eugene McEady. Episodes will come out on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays on Cooper's Facebook and YouTube channels.

The story of COVID-19 often is told in numbers: numbers of cases, numbers of deaths, numbers of recoveries.

As we continue battle COVID-19, Cooper University Health Care wanted to capture the stories of this historic pandemic through the eyes of some of the doctors, nurses, and other care professionals on the frontlines of this battle.

Beyond mere numbers, our series highlights the powerful experiences and memories of some of Cooper’s dedicated health care professionals.
