Faculty collects PPE for London Health Sciences

April 08, 2020


As health care services respond to the COVID-19 pandemic, there has been an increased need for personal protective equipment.

Ed Eastaugh, Lab Manager in the Department of Anthropology saw an opportunity to help with the efforts. Eastaugh put out a call for any extra PPE from labs and offices, and the faculty responded.

Staff and faculty from Anthropology, Geography, Psychology, and Earth Sciences checked their supplies and collected donations for London Health Sciences.

From across the departments, they were able to collect:

  • 6300 gloves
  • 13 N95 masks
  • 50 Basic protection masks
  • 20 protective aprons
  • 2 pairs of protective goggles
  • 1 pair safety glasses.

A big thank you to the generous faculty that donated personal protective equipment to London Health Sciences.
