Abstract

Amid the bleakness of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Illinois PPE Network is an inspiring grassroots success story. Comprising volunteer makers of personal protective equipment (PPE) across the Chicagoland area, the alliance was seeded at DePaul’s Idea Realization Lab (IRL) by its director, Jay Margalus, a School of Design instructor, who assembled a force of 3-D printers to create face shields for health care workers.
