May 27, 2020
Tech PR firm brings technology and innovation expertise to organization helping underserved communities improve health outcomes
New York – May 27, 2020 – Bospar, the boutique PR firm that puts tech companies on the map, is joining the NYC COVID-19 Rapid Response Coalition (CRRC). The firm joins companies at the forefront of innovation in technology and healthcare to help win the war on COVID-19 by supporting the most vulnerable populations from hospitalizations due to the coronavirus crisis.
The CRRC is bringing together leading companies such as Aetna, Amazon, Bain & Co., CVS, Lyft, Teledoc, Uber and nonprofit organizations to create a network of clinical, social, mental health, nutritional, logistical and other providers to lessen the strain on New York City’s overburdened hospital emergency departments and intensive care units.
“The Coalition is doing an amazing job of bringing businesses and nonprofit entities together to solve a common goal – serving an underserved population – by leveraging technology and innovation. Those are two things we at Bospar are very familiar with,” said Bospar Principal Curtis Sparrer.
Bospar’s social media practice, led by veteran journalist and social media expert Ruben Ramirez, is supporting the CRRC by establishing social media channels to amplify the work of the group and create a way for New Yorkers to get involved by donating to local organizations. “Social media as an information source has surged over the past few months. With so many heartbreaking stories, we have an opportunity to help the Coalition highlight all the good that they are doing New York City. We’re thrilled to help them tell their stories,” said Ramirez.
In a recent survey, when asked what organizations they relied on for accurate COVID-19 information, nearly 28% of Americans said social media. “Now, more than ever, New Yorkers understand the power of helping each other through this crisis. Everyone wants to do their part to help their neighbors. We want to make it easy for them to stay connected and learn about what’s happening in their communities and how they can help,” added Bospar Chief Content Officer Tricia Heinrich.
