EPISODE 188: Alvarez of CCBC Engineering tells tale of local engineering efforts to supply PPE to local hospitals

    With so many local businesses shuttered due to the COVID-19 crisis in America, we have been focusing on the arts and entertainment institutions in the Baltimore area and how they are being impacted by all aspects of the corona virus. But we are still mixing in some relevant chats about the pandemic and what it means for our lives and the upcoming elections.

    We all know about the nationwide problem with supplying PPE to medical staffs and hospitals due to the mismanagement of the Trump government’s acknowledgement of the COVID-19 crisis, but we’re not seeing tremendous local efforts by incredible patriots and citizens to step with creating masks and equipment in many creative ways.

    Jaime Alvarez is the Engineering Department Chair at the BCCC Catonsville campus, after serving many years in Essex. His staff and students are partnering with many in the local tech space with 3D printing technologies to create PPE gear for the local medical community.

    Let the local Poly and Towson University graduate tell you all about it in Episode 188 as we explore more ways Baltimore is helping Baltimore during this crisis.

    Clearly, a lot has changed and it’s happening very quickly – and crisis management has become the key role for all us during the pandemic.

    We are all in this together and this is a time to educate, unite and keep each other safe. But we also have some extra time to read and learn and educate ourselves in many ways.

    We will continue to produce high-quality, intelligent conversations with thought leaders throughout this pandemic at Baltimore Positive. And we expect to do it at a rapid pace so stick with us and subscribe!

    Like all others, we have halted a “live schedule” and will continue to launch our chats as we have them during this crisis. Expect more than less.

    Because of the election moving to June 2nd, we will be having more of the mayoral candidates back to Baltimore Positive to discuss all of the current issues and the additional five weeks of virtual campaigning for the hopefuls.

    Please subscribe to Baltimore Positive and stay with us.

    We were built for this…
