Listen to our conversation about PPE Conservation

In this conversation, Crystal Dugger, VP of Clinical Solutions, sits down with two members of our self-proclaimed “COVID-Squad,” Karen Bush and Sarah Michel. The squad was formulated in an effort to provide our members streamlined guidance and resources to navigate the rapidly changing landscape that is COVID-19. During the height of the pandemic, the team published 5-10 documents on a weekly basis. This is a conversation about the organizational structure needed to create the research documents, PPE Conservation, and the passion needed to keep our communities safe.
