With so much uncertainty and instability during these difficult times, Torgenson Law is working to keep our family, friends, clients, and readers of this blog with continuous information on all things Arizona. Even given the current distressing state of affairs, we can catch a glimpse of how extraordinarily resilient our community truly is. From doctors risking their lives on the front lines to everyday citizens going the extra mile to deliver products and services to alleviate anxiety and stress for Arizonans everywhere, we’d like to dedicate this blog to the exceptional people who continue to do extraordinary things in and outside our community. Our Arizona news outlets are working around the clock to spotlight some heroes of this pandemic. Here are some of our favorites:
- Greg Margolin is an adult intensivist working at HonorHealth Scottsdale Shea Medical Center and is heading to Brooklyn, New York to serve in one of the nation’s most affected states. Here in Arizona, Dr. Margolin has treated some of the most critically ill patients in the ICU, and he will continue his work in New York caring for countless more. According to ABC 15, his expertise in dealing with critically ill patients will help alleviate some of the medical staff at Woodhull Medical Center, one of the hospitals treating many patients currently on ventilators.
- The Fashion And Business Resources Innovation Center (“FABRIC”) out of Tempe, Arizona, is teaming up with Dignity Health to help ration supplies in an effort to flatten the curve. ABC 15 states FABRIC is making it their mission to sew reusable isolation gowns for care workers. Specifically, FABRIC will be turning 20,000 yards of material into isolation gowns that can be reused by medical staff. 500 FDA-gowns can be made in eight-hours, and they are aiming to provide approximately 8,500 isolation gowns for Dignity Health.
- Megan Edwards sat down with AZ Family to discuss her newest project, sewing masks for local active and veteran military members. Edwards is the wife of a disabled army veteran and through countless experiences in the VA hospital and the uncertainty of this pandemic, she made it her mission to contribute as much as she could. She is currently sewing the masks and partnering up with Soldiers’ Angels, an organization for veterans and active military.
- Lastly, ABC 15 tells the story of an inspiring 11th grader and her teacher. Ryley Youngs told ABC 15 that she saw the need for ear saver hooks for surgical masks and contacted her honor society advisor Gia Lowell. Together, they are 3-D printing ear saver hooks for medical professionals that have to wear protective equipment for extended periods. Their efforts led to packaged and ready to use hooks that they delivered to Banner hospitals around the Valley.
