Chemistry researchers donate PPE supplies to Lawrence community

Friday, April 10, 2020

KU Chemistry researchers collected personal protective equipment (PPE) supplies to donate to those within the community on the front lines of the fight against the novel coronavirus.  Prof. David Weis lead the collection efforts of these PPE items, and both Associate Prof. Mike Johnson and Distinguished Prof. Steven Soper assisted by delivering the PPE items, which included 200 boxes of gloves and 50 splash goggles donated to the Heartland Community Health Center and another 450 boxes of gloves donated to the Lawrence Douglas County Public Health.  We are very proud of our faculty, staff and students who volunteered their time to assist with the donations and those who provided the PPE items.
