Elizabeth's passion is ensuring that clinicians have the right equipment to be able to help patients effectively and safely. To achieve this, she has been involved in the health care community as a clinician, administrator, consultant, and a medical device product developer. When a call came out for assistance getting PPE, Elizabeth was able to use her Downstream Therapeutics' connections to reach out to this generous community for supplies, printer and people power, and never ceasing energy. This facilitated the fabrication of facial shields, masks and gowns to bridge the gap until the supply chain began to ramp.
