The Frontlines of COVID: A Surgery Sett Series: Episode 15 - Peter Adamczyk

As we continue to understand the coronavirus pandemic as a collaborative effort from journalists to surgeons, we have yet another role to add to our ever-growing list of contributors: engineers. Peter Adamczyk is the co-director of the College of Engineering's COVID response here at UW-Madison. His team at the UW maker space has been designing face shields and other vital equipment for the UW Hospital in the midst of shortages. Peter discusses how this collaboration came to be, and gives advice for engineers hoping to follow in his footsteps.
