In preparation for our safe return, Dr. Raj Puri's Workplace Health Innovation Lab in the Occupational Health Center partnered with University IT (UIT) to create Health Check, a new self-reporting tool that informs you if you’re cleared to return to a Stanford location each day. The tool works in compliance with the new Santa Clara County order requiring daily temperature and COVID-19 system screenings for those planning to visit a Stanford location, including the Stanford Redwood City campus.
Join us next Thursday at 11:30 a.m. for a new COVID-19 virtual town hall, where employees from the front lines of Stanford Medicine's COVID-19 response will share perspectives and experiences from the past several weeks. You will also have an opportunity to have your questions answered during the community Q&A.
Racism and discrimination are direct affronts to Stanford Medicine’s values. Read our leaders’ pledge on racial equity.
