NOSM Medical Students Supporting Northern Ontario Healthcare Workers during COVID-19
WHO/WHAT/WHY: This form is intended for healthcare providers in Northern Ontario (Thunder Bay, Sault Ste. Marie, and Sudbury for the moment), looking for support with life tasks outside the hospitals- childcare/babysitting, grocery runs, pharmacy runs, pet care, general errands, etc. We will do our best to connect you with current NOSM medical students who are able to help (and have childcare experience, if required). We want to support you as best we can during this challenging time. Please note that this initiative is not supported by the Medical School but is supported independently by a group of Medical Students who wish to help out during this situation.
HOW IT WORKS: After you submit this form, we will review the list of medical students who have signed up to help with various tasks. If we are able to find a suitable match, we will connect you and the student via text/email, after which you can arrange plans as schedules allow. We will match one student to one family so that we aren't inadvertently broadening our social circles through this initiative. Unfortunately, this may mean limited student availability. If we are unable to connect you with a medical student, we will let you know as soon as we can.
As this initiative is entirely student-organized, it is dependent on student availability, and the nature of the initiative may change as the COVID situation evolves. We ask that both students and providers ensure timely responses to each other and respect each others' limitations during this challenging time.

Which supports would be beneficial for you?
If selected Childcare or Pet Care, is there any other information that the Medical Student should know (ie. special considerations, allergies, etc.)
Where do you live (Specific area not required, but more so an area so we can match you with a student nearby)?
What time of day do you require the most help?
Do you have any other comments, questions, or information required at this point?
Send me a copy of my responses.
