Using Ultraviolet Light to Sterilize PPE, and How Nurses at Children’s of Alabama are getting Through the Pandemic

Coronavirus got you down? Take it out on a piñata. If you’re not social distancing - it could end up on social media, what Google searches can tell us about our coronavirus thoughts and fears. and DIY projects using food scraps around your kitchen.

Plus hear an interview with Deepak Vashishth, the director of the Center for Biotechnology and Interdisciplinary Studies at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, New York. A team of researchers there has developed a potential solution: a machine that uses ultraviolet (UVC) light to sterilize thousands of protective masks each day.

And We’re heading down South for our Healthcare Hero today, which is Andrew Loehr. He is the Chief Nursing Officer and Vice President of Nursing at Children’s of Alabama - and tells us a bit about what his team has seen during the pandemic.
