“An Inside Look at the Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) Industry During the COVID-19 Pandemic”
As the world changed throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, the importance of science and technology took on a new light in everyone’s lives. At Gentex Corporation, a leading designer and manufacturer of personal protective equipment (PPE), we were at the forefront of the nation’s public health response providing urgent solutions to healthcare workers, first responders and other workers maintaining our critical infrastructure. This seminar will be an inside look at what it was like to be at the intersection of science, business and politics during the pandemic, and what it all means for scientific careers now and in the future.
