Nurse Stressed Out

Coronavirus Gives Global Doctors’ Group A New Frontier: US Nursing Homes

As a coordinator and communicator with Medecins Sans Frontieres (Doctors Without Borders), Heather Pagano has worked in Liberia helping communities fight Ebola; with refugees in Nigeria fleeing conflict; and in South Sudan, where violence has forced millions of people out of their homes.

She never expected to be working in Detroit.
But now Pagano is helping lead a team of MSF specialists who are applying their years of experience fighting infectious diseases in developing countries and war zones to help nursing home staff in Michigan cope with the coronavirus pandemic.
