You can nominate your healthcare heroes


The greater Germantown area is fortunate to have so many unsung healthcare heroes putting themselves on the line during the COVID-19 crisis — working exhausting shifts, taking care of frightened patients and, for some, even staying away from their families to minimize the chance of bringing the virus home.

So we’d like to honor them for their efforts to keep us all safe, with your help.

Who’s the healthcare hero you know?

Send us his/her name, job title and where they work, along with a good photo of the person (who can be in casual clothes or work garb).

And if the hero is you, that’s fine too. Thank you for your sacrifices, and we welcome the chance to honor you too.

We will publish the information and photos in an upcoming issue of this newspaper.

Send your submissions to Graham Sweeney at, call 901.388.1500, or mail to P.O. Box 34967, Bartlett, TN 38134-0967.

Include a phone number (not for publication) where we can call if we have any questions.
We also welcome any stories or letters about the difference that a healthcare provider, first responder, or just the kid down the street who bags groceries after school had made in your life during the coronavirus pandemic.

We want to share stories about people helping people.
