Designing Face Shield for Frontline Responders

By Jenniger Lewis (VBFF)

VBFF fellow Jennifer Lewis (c/o 2016) has been leading the Face Shield Working Group at Mass General Hospital / Brigham Women’s Hospital in Boston. She has been actively engaged in a clinically driven process following a rigorous design-build-test/validate process.  Lewis and her team’s goal is to create face shields that satisfy the clinical needs of the frontline responders, some of which are unique to COVID 19. Once the design is finalized, they plan to share the design with the broader community.  A mention of Dr. Jennifer Lewis efforts in a press release: https://wyss.harvard.edu/news/news-the-wyss-institutes-response-to-covid-19-beating-back-the-coronavirus/
