Le Moyne College’s chemistry department donated several boxes of unopened nitrile gloves to St. Joseph’s Hospital. The department also hopes to donate goggles.
Because the college has transitioned to online instruction for the rest of the semester, the chemistry decided to give lab supplies to a local health care facility. “Le Moyne has a long history of collaboration with St. Joseph’s Hospital through the joint nursing programs, and we thought it was appropriate to share resources with our partners,” said Theresa Beaty, an associate professor of chemistry and department chair. “It is also deeply rooted in Le Moyne’s Jesuit tradition and St. Joseph’s Franciscan tradition to put mission into practice. I am glad that the gloves will help them fulfill their mission in these very challenging times.”
The college’s biology department donated several boxes of latex and nitrile gloves to the Syracuse Community Health Center, the primary mobile testing site in the region.
