Hoopers Meet Heroes: Heat’s Bam Adebayo and Miami’s Dr. Damion Campbell

The people on the frontline of the coronavirus pandemic are healthcare professionals, everyday citizens risking their lives to save those of their patients. They are the heroes right now.

In CloseUp360's “Hoopers Meet Heroes” series, which connects NBA players with healthcare professionals on the frontline of the fight against the coronavirus in their respective cities, Heat All-Star Bam Adebayo chatted with Dr. Damion Campbell, a Montego Bay, Jamaica native who's an emergency medicine physician in Miami. They discussed the local outbreak, the concepts of leadership and teamwork in the hospital and on the court, and the importance of family activities at home while in quarantine.

Healthcare professionals like Dr. Campbell need our help. So many of them are facing an imminent shortage of PPE (personal protective equipment), especially in cities that are either bracing for or currently enduring surges in COVID-19 cases. The lack of PPE in medical facilities—including safety goggles, N95 masks, face shields and gowns—remains a serious concern in this global crisis. Those on the frontlines need this gear to stay safe and healthy while continuing to help patients who are battling this virus.
