West Virginia State University Donates Examination Gloves to Charleston Area Medical Center

INSITUTE, W.Va. -- The West Virginia State University (WVSU) College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics donated all of its unused laboratory examination gloves to the Charleston Area Medical Center (CAMC) Tuesday.

“With hospitals around the country facing shortages of personal protective equipment, this is one action we can take to help assist those that are on the frontlines of providing health care during the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Dr. Micheal Fultz, chair of WVSU Department of Chemistry.

WVSU announced last week that it would switch to alternate learning methods of non-face-to-face instruction for the remainder of the spring semester. Fultz said that since teaching lab classes would not be done on campus for the remainder of the semester it made sense to donate the gloves at a time when CAMC was in such need of personal protective equipment.

Dr. Molly Seidler, a CAMC physician and WVSU alumna, picked up the donated gloves on Tuesday morning. More than 5,000 pairs of gloves were donated.
