John A. Burns School of Medicine University of Hawaii at Manoa

Resource Production and Acquisition:

In response to the scarcity of protective equipment, students and faculty in the University of Hawaii at Manoa’s Department of Theatre and Dance and the John A. Burns School of Medicine are sewing fabric face masks and assembling face shields to be donated. About a dozen theater students and 60 medical students, along with several staff members, are making the critically needed items at home, with JABSOM serving as a central clearinghouse where the masks are dropped off for sanitizing and distribution.
