Photo Friday: Total Health includes Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)

The digital walking wall at the Center for Total Health has not yet seen a person wearing PPE, until now.

This photograph was taken yesterday at a first-of-its kind workshop on protecting the health workforce in the era of ebola. The workshop was coordinated by the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (@WhiteHouseOSTP) and United States Agency for International Development (@USAID), and hosted by Kaiser Permanente, who also announced Kaiser Permanente Share | Kaiser Permanente Delivers $1 Million to Aid in Ebola Relief earlier in the week. Kaiser Permanente infectious disease specialists were also in attendance.

The rest of the photos from the day are below. You can see ideating and prototyping withing. Thanks to the OSTP/USAID team and specifically Claudia Williams (@ClaudiaWilliams) for bringing this conversation forward.
