Andreas Ramos, CMO, Volunteers for Harvard Medical
Andreas has engaged as a digital marketing volunteer for Harvard medical with their special ventilators program.
The program is designed to train frontline medical professionals to operate the mechanical ventilators needed to treat COVID-19 patients.
Doctors and nurses learn how to use ventilators within an hour, a process which normally takes up to five days.
The free online course is hosted at EdX, the virtual educational platform founded by Harvard and MIT. Digital marketing actions attract thousands of visits to the website, and more and more frontline workers benefit from the online course to save lives.

Clément Schneider, Director of Digital Marketing
Clément has supervised the launch of the French movement PourEux [ForThem] that delivers food to the homeless in Strasbourg, his hometown. PourEux [ForThem] is a way to fight precariousness through citizen solidarity. Some citizens contribute with meals, while others collect and deliver them to people in precarious situations.
Everything starts from the Facebook group. Citizens indicate what they want to donate by filling in a form and the distribution by couriers is organized by an application with automated processes. In a few days, the movement already has delivered hundreds of meals in the street of Strasbourg and a lot of humanity to people who need it the most.
