Cheers to CBS This Morning for this news segment on Miami artist Claudia La Bianca.

La Bianca, who specializes in portraying women as empowering superheroes, found herself short on work during the Coronavirus pandemic.

So she began doing paintings to honor healthcare workers on the frontlines of the pandemic.

She was so touched by the response that she reached out to hospitals to draw murals of health care heroes — including social workers. Several hospitals have taken her up on the offer.

“I can see their smiles through their masks,” she told CBS. “It’s the best feeling ever. I’ve never been so happy.”

To learn more about the life-saving and life-affirming work of social workers visit the National Association of Social Workers Help Starts Here consumer website. And social workers can find resources to help them during the pandemic at NASW’s Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) Resources and Updates Webpage.
