The pandemic has taken a heavy toll on frontline workers in healthcare, placing them at both tremendous physical and mental risk as they work to treat those stricken by COVID-19.
As a new study of frontline healthcare workers from Prudential Insurance puts it: “Healthcare workers are doing what they must to treat and save the lives of COVID-19 patients, because it is who they are.
