Life on Pause: Daniel Alligood (17C)

Headshot of Berry alumnus Daniel Alligood

Berry alumnus and graduate medical student Daniel Alligood (17C) has found ways to help others since the pandemic interrupted his clinical rotations.

How have you been impacted by COVID-19?

As a third-year medical student in Rome, Ga., the COVID-19 pandemic has interrupted my clinical rotations, thus halting my medical education temporarily.

How have you been helping others during the COVID-19 pandemic?

My classmates and I have been volunteering with the NW GA Department of Public Health. We answer phone calls from both physicians and local citizens, organize COVID-19 testing and recruit recovered patients for plasma donation.

What would you tell Berry alums and/or students right now?

To those who are practicing social distancing, your sacrifice is saving lives. To those who are essential workers, I am forever grateful for your courage. To those who are suffering from COVID-19, you are in my thoughts and prayers.
