Sioux Falls PPE Drive

In The Moment ... March 31, 2020 Show 785 Hour 1

Shortages of personal protective equipment have been occurring all over the nation. As the COVID-19 cases continue to increase, more and more masks and gloves will be needed for our health care workers to protect themselves as they care for their patients. Students at the Sanford School of medicine may not be able to be in the hospitals, but that doesn't mean they're not still trying to help. 
 
Today we're joined by two of the students organizing a "personal protective equipment" drive. Ahna Buntrock  is a third-year med student planning on specializing in OB-GYN, and Natalie Walter is a third-year med student specializing in Emergency Medicine.
