Healthcare Working Group

The COVID-19 Healthcare Working Group's work was sunsetted at the end of July 2020. The COVID-19 Reponse Team and the DU-National Jewish Health Liaison Team has assumed the charge. 


The focus of this group is to identify a healthcare partner who might establish a presence on campus that would provide COVID testing and tracing as well as additional general healthcare needs of our community members.
