Inspire launches Keep Us All Safe campaign to help curb COVID-19

April 15, 2020

Inspire has launched a COVID-19 prevention campaign, Keep Us All Safe, with public service announcement (PSA) videos by patients at high risk for contracting the virus.

“We see an enormous amount of coronavirus-related discussion within our two-million-member community—not surprising, as many of them are at high risk to be affected by COVID-19,” said Inspire CEO Brian Loew. “We created the Keep Us All Safe campaign to show everyone these raw, first-person stories, many by younger people, that can help increase social distancing and slow and stop the spread of the virus. These are the faces of people at risk.”

The #KeepUsAllSafe PSA videos so far have featured cancer survivors Carly Flumer and Trevor Maxwell, Crohn’s disease patient advocate Tina Aswani Omprakash, and Keisha Greaves, who lives with Limb-Girdle Muscular Dystrophy. Other video contributions have come from Inspire community members affected by lupus, pulmonary fibrosis, lung cancer, encephalitis, sarcoidosis, and other disorders from the 3,600 conditions represented on Inspire.

As part of #KeepUsAllSafe efforts to support patients and caregivers, and the public at large, Inspire also has launched a dynamic resource page, where tens of thousands of patient and caregiver members have also shared questions, tips, and experiences to help one another during this pandemic, and an online support community.
