As the coronavirus epidemic rages on across New York City, we want to hear from the healthcare workers on the front lives battling to save lives.

Our reporters want to speak about what they’ve witnessed in emergency rooms, medical centers, nursing homes, and other facilities where lives hang in the balance every day. We want to tell their stories to show New York City their courage but also the severity of the conditions they work in — and the situation they face.

We welcome submissions at any time from active New York City physicians, nurses, lab technicians, and other healthcare workers who are helping to treat patients.
