National Health Care Supply Chain Week (SC Week), October 3-9, 2021, is an opportunity to recognize the importance of the health care supply chain professionals and honor them for their exceptional contributions to patient care and the innovative ways in which they support their health care organizations and communities.
Through every challenge the health care supply chain has faced during the COVID-19 pandemic, we have seen incredible collaboration and maximizing scarce resources through a formation of strategic alliances – the true embodiment of advancing health care through supply chain excellence.

COVID-19: Stress and Coping Resources
Front-line caregivers are courageous, talented and committed, but are under extraordinary pressure. While these heroes deserve recognition for their incredible effort, they are human, too, and need to protect and nurture their mental health, and seek care when needed. AHA has a number of behavioral health resources to support and encourage these health defenders, including a page dedicated to COVID-19: Stress and Coping Resources.
