About this event

Since our virtual workshop on April 3rd, the USC team has made significant progress in developing reusable filtered masks with the help of the local manufacturing community. This forum will share details of the current design and plans for fabricating these masks. This will enable the LA community to help produce usable masks based on a safe design concept. Register for this community update if you want to help mitigate the PPE shortage. Space will be limited to promote conversation and idea sharing.

Speakers: Darryl Hwang, Daniel Stemen, and Shawn Chapman

Moderator: SK Gupta

This session will be hosted on Zoom. Links and passwords will be sent to all registered participants the morning of April 21.
