Peterson Health Donates Face Shields to Schreiner University

On Wednesday, Oct 21, Peterson Health made a donation of 5000 reusable face shields to Schreiner University. These face shields will allow students, faculty and staff another option of protection while adhering to the campus safety protocols.

“We purchased a large number of face shields at the beginning of the pandemic,” said Karen Clark, Director of Supply Chain for Peterson Health. “Initially our clinical staff members were using them. As we moved forward, many of our staff members decided they preferred to wear goggles instead. While some of our folks still use the shields, we are now able to help out the community with some of our excess stock.”

These face shields came at a perfect time for Schreiner University. Students and faculty had recently been asking for an option to the cloth face masks while giving lectures, speeches or other presentations as part of their academics.

“This was an incredibly timely donation from our friends at Peterson Health,” said Dr. Charlie McCormick, President of Schreiner University. “Our students have been asking about moving to face shields while behind a plexi-glass barrier when they give presentations. This will allow us to honor their request.”
