Mark Wehde, Member at large, IEEE TEMS & Dr. Jonathan Morris during the Mayo Clinic Q&A podcast.
Mayo Clinic is preparing for a war against this virus. We have already developed our own test for our patients and staff. We are also working hard on a vaccine. Beyond that, thousands of staff are engaged in preparing to care for the patients we know are coming.
Minnesota has been spared so far from the incredible challenges and tragedy being faced elsewhere in the country and the world. If Governor Walz’s shelter-in-place order in Minnesota works, perhaps we will be spared the worst of it.
No matter what, the engineering team will be available to help our healthcare workers. They are the true heroes.
When it comes to fighting the COVID-19 pandemic, Mayo Clinic is relying not only on clinicians, but also engineers. Supply chain management and manufacturing capabilities are being readied to help in the fight against COVID-19.
On the Mayo Clinic Q&A podcast, Dr. Jonathan Morris, co-director of Mayo Clinic’s 3D Anatomic Modeling Lab, and Mark Wehde, chair of Mayo Clinic’s Division of Engineering, discuss personal protective equipment and mobilizing the manufacturing sector to help in the fight.
