For her labors during the COVID-19 outbreak, frontline worker Lisa Barlow attended a White House National Nurses Week function on Wednesday, May 6 (which was National Nurses Day), in Washington, D.C.

Barlow is a Charleston-based care transitions nurse for Genesis Healthcare. She volunteered to work for two weeks in April at a sister nursing facility in Ridgewood, New Jersey, as the pandemic spread throughout the United States.

Barlow left her family in Campbells Creek on April 15 to assist her Garden State health care colleagues in supporting nursing home residents during the COVID-19 outbreak.
