The multi-industry coalition "Stop the COVID Spread!" continues its public education campaign through the month of December thanks in part to the generous support various Wisconsin Hospital Association (WHA) corporate partners have given to the Healthy Wisconsin Alliance, which is funding the coalition's efforts. Corporate supporters include Coverys, C.G. Schmidt, Wipfli LLP, Deloitte Consulting LLP, Quarles & Brady LLP, Eppstein Uhen Architects (EUA), GRAEF, Von Briesen & Roper, S.C., Central Minnesota Diagnostic, Inc. (CMDI), and First Business Bank.
The Healthy Wisconsin Alliance is a 501(c)(4) organization affiliated with WHA that works to ensure the good health of all Wisconsin residents while maintaining the strength and vibrancy of Wisconsin's health care system. The "Stop the COVID Spread!" coalition was formed on Oct. 9 by WHA, Wisconsin Counties Association, Wisconsin Manufacturers & Commerce/Wisconsin Safety Council, Wisconsin Grocers Association, and the Wisconsin Restaurant Association, all of whom serve as co-chairs. The coalition has grown to include more than 125 organizations across the state.
"We salute the enormous efforts that these organizations have extended to halt the spread of the pandemic in Wisconsin and instead spread awareness," said Quarles & Brady LLP Partner Sarah Coyne. "Quarles & Brady is pleased to support the 'Stop the COVID Spread!' coalition."
"Stop the COVID Spread!" has released five public education announcements, with two more planned to air on broadcast TV, radio and digital channels statewide. The ads can be viewed here.
“The Coverys Community Healthcare Foundation (CCHF) is committed to helping those organizations who deliver health care services in the communities we serve,” said Coverys Senior Advisor Mary L. Ursul. “This commitment has never been more important as now, when hospitals and health care workers on the frontlines are fighting an intense battle against COVID in communities across Wisconsin. CCHF is honored to support the “Stop the COVID Spread!” coalition’s efforts during this difficult time."
“We are extremely grateful for the generous support of our corporate partners this year, and especially to those who have supported the Healthy Wisconsin Alliance and the continuing efforts of the ‘Stop the COVID Spread! coalition’s public education initiative,” said WHA President and CEO Eric Borgerding.
