10,000 Masks For Healthcare Heroes

By WVU University Relations

In our fourth episode, we talk to Elizabeth Shorrock, a visiting assistant professor of Fashion, Dress & Merchandising at the Davis College of Agriculture, Natural Resources and Design. She launched an effort in March to create masks for healthcare providers and others in need.  She shares how the idea was generated, how she and a group of students worked during the pandemic, and how gratifying the experience has been.  In this interview-driven series, “WVU and the Coronavirus” will examine what we already know about COVID-19, find out the latest information about the virus, explore how RNA viruses like coronaviruses work, and learn how the University community has responded to the global pandemic. Written by Stacey Elza, Wendy Holdren and David Ryan. Narrated by David Ryan. Sound mixed by Sean Hines.
