Nearly two years later, we are pleased to honor the orgs that funded, supplied, made, & flew thousands of pieces of PPE to rural hospitals across CO when COVID disrupted supply chain. We can’t thank you enough!@projectcure @whimsiwhiskers @AngelFlightWest @Make4Covid #CHARural pic.twitter.com/KelEBISaS4— CHA (@COHospitalAssn) March 4, 2022
Special thanks to those who made it possible, including our own or alumni Lauren Hebert, Andrew Henderson, Dan Grimer, Kate Goodman, and Kelsie Faulds. In fact, the list is so long that I might have missed some of our awesome talent (If I did, just sent me a note via my email).
Over 120,000 pieces of PPE Distributed, with 105 partner organizations, using over 2,200 volunteers, and 536 equipment requests fulfilled.
PPE: A fabric mask, face shield, the "Livingston" N95 mask, and the PAPR Hood and Pump system were all open-source designs created by the team at M4C.
Playbook: Along the way, M4C learned how to design, create, and deliver all sorts of things needed to fight the pandemic. They created a playbook to compile all of their learning on doing all that, and remaining safe and healthy.
Aerosolve: An open-source piece of software designed to see how safe our indoor spaces are, and for how long. This meticulously designed software was based on the research done by MIT, and in conjunction with CU Denver and Anschutz.
