Calling Any Volunteer Engineers or Innovators

The demand for personal protective equipment (PPE) has created a severe shortage of PPE across the world. The supply simply cannot keep up with the demand. To respond to that need, the American Hospital Association is launching a call to action to increase production and distribution of PPE to health care workers across the country.

Together with Point A, we are calling for anyone who has technical or manufacturing experience and who is looking to help during this time of crisis.

Many manufacturers are closing their facilities or exploring how to reconfigure their facilities to produce PPE . . . and your engineering and innovation experience would be valuable. Consulting with manufacturers that need your help and your expertise will allow these manufacturers to start to produce much needed PPE and keep many employed.
