Healthcare leaders across the country have been tackling the challenges of this pandemic with ingenuity. I am inspired by their dedication and perseverance and will be sharing stories on this blog over the next several weeks in order to recognize and amplify their efforts.
Healthcare Purchasing News recently highlighted the Mayo Clinic in its article about COVID-19 changemakers.

But there was a catch, in order to produce the 300,000 face shields, workers would be needed to supplement Pepin Manufacturing’s production crews.
