UC Irvine healthcare workers get free tickets to Super Bowl In Tampa Bay

A team of frontline healthcare workers at the University of California, Irvine attended the Super Bowl in Tampa, Florida Sunday with free tickets reserved as a token of gratitude for helping COVID-19 patients. … “We got a notice about a week ago that we were going,” said Cipriano Macabuhay, a respiratory therapist with UCI. … “It really does mean a lot because I think the 12 of us here representing UC Irvine are representative of a larger fraternity of healthcare employees who have really poured their heart and soul and sacrificed a lot,” added Macabuhay.
