Real Life Story

A better Ebola suit starts here. In West Africa, temperatures can reach 115 degrees Fahrenheit with 100 percent humidity. For Ebola caregivers, wearing crucial protective suits for more than an hour in these conditions is nearly unbearable. Yet each time they change, they risk contact with the virus on the suits' exteriors. Thanks in part to her Shaw Scholarship, Gabriela Frid, Engr '16, could attend Hopkins and join a team that helped design a safer Ebola suit. Frid worked on cooling and venting, to increase the amount of time workers can function comfortably without changing. It was the experience of a lifetime ? not only for Frid, but for all the caregivers who will benefit from her work. Together there's more we can do to help great students like Gabriela Frid obtain a Hopkins education. Learn more at https://rising.jhu.edu/ebolasuit.
