The critical shortage of medical supplies and personal protection equipment (PPE) impacts health care professionals working the front lines in a variety of settings. When the Michigan Veterans Affairs Agency reached out on behalf of the D.J. Jacobetti Home for Veterans in Marquette, two NMU entities stepped up to help keep U.P. veterans safe.
Volunteer Scot Wheeler picked up donated medical supplies from NMU's School of Clinical Lab Sciences, along with PPE and sanitizing supplies from NMU's Jacobetti Complex.
The donations included gloves, accordion masks, lab coats, surgical gowns, eye protection, hand sanitizer, bleach wipes and other items.
