As 2021 comes to a close, all of us at Nuwellis are pausing to reflect on the year we’re leaving behind. This year was a year of major milestones for us – a new name, new CEO and new focus areas, just to name a few. This year also had its share of challenges. As the COVID-19 pandemic continued on, many experienced hardships and lives were forever changed in ways both large and small.
In difficult times, it’s important to pause and reflect on the positive changes happening throughout the world. Throughout the pandemic, we’ve been inspired by the generosity and kindness shown by our communities to uplift those who are struggling. Nuwellis is proud to have supported a variety of organizations throughout the past year. Read on to learn more about their amazing work, how Nuwellis has been involved, and how you can join us in supporting them.
