Daily CEO Update | Researchers Expand Our Understanding of COVID-19
At Cleveland Clinic, we are very passionate about discovering the treatments of tomorrow.
Our scientists and researchers have been working tirelessly to expand our understanding of COVID-19.
Today, I am joined by Dr. Serpil Erzurum, chair of our Lerner Research Institute, to hear about this exciting work. Watch the video above.
We will continue to celebrate our scientists and researchers, and incorporate their discoveries into our care.
Thank you to all caregivers for your dedication to our mission. You are what distinguishes Cleveland Clinic, and what makes our organization shine around the globe.
Tom Mihaljevic, MD
CEO and President

Show Your Support of #GivingTuesdayNow
Our Cleveland Clinic family is coming together like never before. We have seen a tremendous response from corporations, organizations, community members and fellow caregivers who are committed to supporting our COVID-19 response. But there’s still more work to do.
On Tuesday, May 5, Cleveland Clinic will participate in #GivingTuesdayNow – a global day of giving created as an emergency response to the unprecedented need caused by COVID-19. Nonprofits around the world will ask their communities to give back, just like you are doing through our Caregiver Giving Program.
We are humbled by your generosity. Nearly 650 caregivers have donated and together raised more than $200,000.
Tomorrow, let’s continue our outstanding legacy of unity on #GivingTuesdayNow. You can learn more and consider a gift to our Caregiver Giving Program. The program supports:
- The COVID-19 Emergency Response Fund, which supports high-priority COVID-19 research initiatives working toward treatments and a cure. The fund also provides aid to front-line caregivers.
- The Caregiver Hardship Fund, which was recently expanded to assist caregivers who are experiencing unexpected financial hardship or expenses related to COVID-19.
As always, giving is voluntary. We appreciate your consideration and are grateful for gifts of any amount.
Thank you for your outpouring of support. One of our caregivers said it best: “I give in honor of the work we do, the people we are and the difference we make.”
