College Donates Equipment to Protect Healthcare Workers During COVID-19 Outbreak

Dominican College has donated desperately needed personal protective equipment for healthcare personnel to use during the COVID-19 outbreak.  Thomas Nowak, Ph.D., Vice President for Academic Affairs, said the College donated  N95 masks, basic procedural masks, gowns, and gloves.

“Dominican College absolutely wants to do whatever it can to help during this difficult time.  We are well known for our health programs – from nursing to occupational therapy to physical therapy,” said Nowak.  “That puts us in a unique situation.  Many faculty and graduate nursing students are certainly involved on the front lines and anything the College can do to help out, we will certainly do.”

The personal protective equipment was donated by the College Departments of Nursing, Occupational Therapy, and Athletic Training.  Equipment was sent to the Javits Center, as well as local ambulance corps.
