Shannon Levac | Med Tech

Shannon Levac works as a med tech at the Detroit Medical Center, but her desire to help her community fight the COVID-19 pandemic extends beyond her job. She has also volunteered her services at one of Detroit’s drive-through testing sites at the State Fairgrounds.

“It’s just my job and I just try to do the best I can,” Shannon told WDIC 4 in an interview.

Shannon is one of many DMC healthcare workers who volunteer at the testing site, along with volunteers from other local health systems.

“It was definitely a joint effort, which is another wonderful thing that came out of this situation, how we all can work so collaboratively together to address this common dynamic, which is the pandemic,” said Tonita Cheatham, DMC Chief Community Engagement Officer, in the interview.

Cheatham also expressed her tremendous gratitude on behalf of the DMC to Shannon and all city healthcare workers for devoting their personal time to help fight the pandemic.
