Celebrating the People that Keep the World Healthy

April 7, 2020

World Health Day

In tandem with the World Health Organization’s World Health Day, we’re taking a moment to celebrate professionals and experts on the frontlines of the COVID-19 pandemic. Today, we’re unveiling a special edition of LinkedIn Top Voices list, highlighting the health care experts who are covering the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Each year, our Top Voices list surfaces the professionals whose posts, videos, articles and comments spark quality conversations in their industries. This special edition list features the health care experts that are lighting up LinkedIn right now to cover COVID-19—sharing what they’re seeing, what’s coming next and offering insights on what all of us can and must do. 

You can follow all of the Top Voices on the list, including Tom Frieden, former director of the Centers for Disease Control, who shares insights from his work to end the 2014 West Africa Ebola epidemic and other past experiences; Rhonda Medows, president of population health at Providence St. Joseph Health, who shares credible tips for what the public can do to fight COVID-19; and Louis Profeta, emergency physician, who offers his perspective from being on the front lines. These are the doctors, epidemiologists and public health experts that are sharing what it’s really like inside hospitals right now, reminding us about the importance of social distancing and revealing key insights about the virus

Following these influential leaders in health care is a helpful step to stay up to date on COVID-19. You can also join us and our Top Voices in celebrating personal health care heroes today on World Health Day—share a photo of your health care hero on LinkedIn and tag them using #WorldHealthDay. 

Note: Top Voices is a list of individuals sharing their own expertise, experiences and opinions.

To help connect health care workers quickly with organizations needing their support, we’ve also made a few changes on LinkedIn including a dedicated jobs portal and real-time job alerts for professionals whose skills match roles urgently needed by organizations fighting coronavirus.
