We know that the coronavirus (COVID-19) is on everyone's mind. On this page, you'll find resources to help you and your practice. We will continue to update these documents to make sure they are as up to date as possible. As always, at NAM, we believe we're stronger together as a community of medicine —so don't hesitate to reach out with questions or concerns.

Wanting to Volunteer?
The volunteer medical mobilizer is being converted into a tool that registers clinical/non-clinical volunteers and those clinicians and staff seeking employment. Those who have availability to help meet growing staffing needs as a state can register here: https://www.tn.gov/health/cedep/cedep-emergency-preparedness/volunteer-mobilizer.html. This list will be increasingly utilized in the coming weeks. Clinical staff looking for employment are needed to care for COVID and non COVID patients as hospitals put plans into place to increase their capacity.
NAM is asking community members, including local businesses and individuals who are not involved in caring for COVID-19 patients, to donate new and unused medical and PPE that could protect doctors involved in the city’s response. Click here to learn more.
