When: 2:00pm, Friday, April 10, 2020.
Where: West Parking Lot of Research Medical Center, 2316 E. Meyer Blvd., Kansas City, MO 64132.
Why: Inspired by nurses going and above and beyond to help families say connected during the COVID-19 pandemic, Research Medical Center board members, families and supporters, along with the community, will show support - from their cars or by social distancing in the hospital's west parking lot - for patients and caregivers.
"We're asking people to maintain CDC-prescribed protocols and social distancing," says Research Medical Center CEO Ashley McClellan. "Simply cheer, sit in your car and honk your horn or hold a sign to show support for these tireless and courageous caregivers caring for patients and their families. While we can't hug one another, we can show our appreciation and gratitude in many other ways. This is a powerful way to show our support during this crisis."
Precise social distancing guidelines are followed to ensure the health and safety of all participants.
