Meet the Team
Pandemic Patients is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that works to relieve the harm caused by COVID-19 and Post-COVID Conditions. The organization was founded by Christopher Floyd and Andrew Wylam on May 26, 2021 during the coronavirus pandemic. The founders launched Pandemic Patients with the goal of providing support and services to those who have been affected by COVID-19. Pandemic Patients accomplishes this mission by raising awareness about COVID-19 and Post-COVID Conditions, advocating for change at the state and federal level, and providing educational resources and updates about the coronavirus pandemic to the public.
In 2022, Pandemic Patients launched the Pandemic Legal Assistance Network (PLAN) and the COVID-19 Advocacy Center. PLAN serves as a vital resource for people affected by COVID-19 by connecting them with a network of attorneys who can provide pro bono legal assistance. The COVID-19 Advocacy Center is a hub for advocates to learn about opportunities to engage with public policy and connect with their elected officials.
The vision of Pandemic Patients is a future where people affected by COVID-19 receive the support and services they need to live their best lives.
Pandemic Patients strives to uphold the following values in all programs and activities:
Compassion: The coronavirus pandemic has been tough on everyone, especially those who have been directly affected by COVID-19. Patients and survivors of COVID-19 deserve dedicated support and services that provide a swift path to recovery.
Integrity: Those seeking our assistance are often in a vulnerable position. We are committed to treating everyone with dignity and respect and we will never betray the trust of those who rely on us.
Objectivity: COVID-19 is a controversial issue that has sown division among friends, families, and communities. We will only share unbiased information that is grounded in facts and science and we will never attempt to benefit from sensationalizing the pandemic.
Transparency: Fulfilling the spirit of our values requires a commitment to the truth. We will always be transparent with the public about our work – even when it’s challenging.
