A Letter From a Frontline Hero – Dr. Simerpreet Sandhanwalia

"At the height of the first wave of the COVID-19 pandemic, it was gut-wrenching to call a family member to tell them that their husband, wife, mom or dad was about to die, and connect them via phone or tablet due to the no-visitor policy."
