Mountain Area Health Education Center Test Swabs on 3D Printers and Supply Distribution

Kacey Scott in Face Shield

Mountain Area Health Education Center and UNC School of Medicine Asheville student, Kacey Scott, have been working with area funders to purchase resin cartridges and sterile packaging to make test swabs on 3D printers (working w/ MAHEC dental residents and UNC Asheville faculty and students). Kacey and 20 fellow medical students are also helping with distribution of supplies, and they are producing over 600 test swabs a day. Some of these swabs will be used for tests administered at MAHEC and some will be distributed to other testing sites throughout WNC. Kacey, as well as other MAHEC and UNC learners, have been amazing and have shown tremendous initiative and creativity in their efforts to make PPE and other materials to help our community respond to this crisis!
