The pandemic has shown us what really matters

The coronavirus has spread across the world leaving a reality that words can hardly express. I Choose Health steps away from the bleak reports and instead shines a light on the positive efforts made to adapt and fight back against the pandemic. It looks at the ways people have been focusing on their health and wellness, and what we might take away when this is all over. The campaign draws upon a survey of over 1,500 people across the United States, accounts from patient advocates who have had to battle for their health and wellness their whole life, and reporting from around the world.
