KNX Heroes and UC Irvine Medical Students Justine Chinn, Austin Franklin Help Docs During COVID-19 Pandemic

The pandemic can be especially tough for doctors, nurses and other medical personnel who have children at home while they work to save lives. In some cases, a baby-sitter is needed. In others, it’s tutoring. Or walking the dog. Or buying groceries. … So, over a hundred UC-Irvine undergrads signed up to offer their free time to help those in need. … The idea for the service collection came to fruition through Justine Chinn and fellow classmate Austin Franklin. Franklin gathered the list of students able to help. Chinn reached out to department heads to find out what the needs were. … We are recognizing UCI medical students Justine Chinn and Austin Franklin as our KNX Heroes of the Week
