During COVID-19 Outbreak












Sent on behalf of Ami Doshi, MD

Physician Wellness Champion, Department of Pediatrics


Dear Faculty and Physicians,


We have compiled and created a Google doc with an ongoing list of resources for maintaining our personal and family wellness across many different arenas: Resources List Ranging from Child Care to Food Delivery and Beyond


We hope you find them useful!  We would also like to call on all of you, as an amazing hive mind, to share other resources you find helpful for staying well and keeping our home lives going.  You can add them to the Google doc by clicking hereIf you have issues or questions, please email Beth Printz, MD


The Hive Mind  -a collective consciousness, analogous to the behavior of social insects, in which a group of people become aware of their commonality and think and act as a community, sharing their knowledge, thoughts, and resources. (


Childcare and Other Household Help From UCSD Medical Students

The UCSD medical students created a centralized mechanism to field provider requests for medical student help with childcare and other household support (pet care, errands, etc.) within San Diego County. The following link is for providers (doctors, nurses, residents, etc.) in need of support during this chaotic time.  Depending on volume, students will do their best to respond to requests as soon as possible.  

Full instructions, details, and limitations are listed here with the Provider Support Request Form. (Note: You may need to sign into your Google account to access).

Coping with Coronavirus Stress

Read the March 26, 2020 issue of thisweek@ucsandiego which offers more tips and resources for UCSD community members to protect their mental health during the pandemic. 

Be Well and Thank You!
