Every Hero Needs a Shield

Healthcare workers are facing critical shortages of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) as they risk their lives on the frontline in the fight against COVID-19.  In order to help, we are procuring face shields from a supplier in central Illinois and distributing them to frontline healthcare workers.  While this will provide us immediate PPE resources, we anticipate a time when sourcing is no longer an option & thus have mobilized a parallel effort to scale up manufacturing options. We are mobilizing the Kellogg student & alumni network in the fight to produce critical PPE.
