University of Alabama Helping Fabricate Protection for Health Care Workers
The University of Alabama community has come together to help provide 3-D-printed personal protective equipment, or PPE, for health care workers locally and in the region.
Two groups across three colleges on campus are producing face shields for health care professionals at University Medical Center, DCH Health System in Tuscaloosa and UAB Hospital. PPE, such as masks, gloves and gowns, are in short supply across the country during the pandemic of the novel coronavirus, COVID-19.
A crowdfunding website is set up to assist UA faculty, staff and students in their efforts.
