Making Masks
April 2020
COVID-19 HELP: Midwest Physical Therapy was happy to respond when frontline healthcare workers were in need of N95 masks in April, 2020. We were provided with sheets of surgical fabric which was measured, traced, cut and sewn by staff pitching in. Even Dr. Wisinski’s Mother helped us sew. Approximately 90 masks were produced and given to those on the front line. Helping our community is always our goal, but especially in times like this. We are always happy to help.
