Parker Jewish Institute’s Frontline Channels Creates Uplifting Video

 Front-line team members at Parker Jewish Institute channelled teamwork and joy in an inspiring video filmed and edited by their colleague, Aileen Albis-Umali.

The three-minute-and-24-second video provided an outlet for some positivity amid the unrelenting COVID-19 pandemic, according to Ms. Albis-Umali, a physical therapist assistant at Parker’s Rehabilitation Department.  

“It was a very emotional time,” said Ms. Albis-Umali, who in April and May began taking photos and filming short video clips of her teammates, with their permission, at Parker.

The video captures the encouraging support Parker’s health-care workers received from one another, and from the community. That community includes first responders from New York City and Long Island fire, police and EMS crews who paid tribute with a “Sound Off,” as a salute to health-care workers switching shifts at 7 p.m. in April.

Serving on the health-care front lines during the apex of the coronavirus pandemic in New York is something Ms. Albis-Umali said she will never forget. And that sentiment is reflected in the video.

“I was inspired by how Parker’s Rehabilitation Department stood strong in delivering care to all of the COVID patients,” said Ms. Albis-Umali, who has worked at Parker since 2015.

Ever-present in the video is a painting that depicts Parker’s iconic blue logo, supported by hands, and the words “We will survive,” “#ParkerStrong,” “NYTough,” and “FightCOVID-19.”

“Our front-line team members have shown courage and compassion during in the battle against COVID-19,” said Michael N. Rosenblut, Parker’s President and CEO. “Through this crisis, the Parker team stood tall for our families, and for each other.”
