Meet the Team

We are students supporting our community healthcare heroes on the frontlines of the battle in this unprecedented pandemic.

Our team provides services to all essential healthcare employees, from clinical staff like doctors, nurses, and techs, to non-clinical staff like administrators, food service workers, and custodians. The covidsitters project started at the University of Minnesota with some very dedicated medical students and we are so excited to bring the project to Pittsburgh. We are here for you!

Our goal is to help offset the impact of school closures and increased work demands on healthcare workers.

Our board consists of medical students, yet the lifeblood of this organization is made up of local volunteers from our community. We are humbled by their overwhelming support! 

Our organization would not exist without the work of each and every one of our board members.
