COLLABORATION
Emory Healthcare, Georgia Tech team up on rapid production of face shields
With supplies of medical personal protective equipment strained amid the COVID-19 outbreak, a cross-disciplinary team at Emory Healthcare and the Georgia Institute of Technology is working on a new effort to supply thousands of face shields to health care professionals on front lines.

 

COMMUNITY
Hawks and State Farm support Atlanta’s health care heroes

RESPONSE
