Chicago-based medical professional, Dr. Valerie Mayuga is helping COVID patients stay connected to their families. To keep everyone safe, families are often not able to visit their loved ones while they're being treated and many patients don't have technology with them to stay in touch. Dr. Mayuga is collecting gently used ipads and other tablets to keep families connected during this difficult time.
