Faculty and staff in SUNY Oswego science programs found a way to lend a big hand to the Oswego Hospital by recently donating 16,600 gloves.

The nitrile gloves, which will support the work of Oswego Health in ongoing efforts during the coronavirus pandemic, came from the following college units:

  • Biological sciences department and Rice Creek Field Station: 7,600 gloves
  • Molecular Biology and Biochemistry Center and individual National Science Foundation/National Institutes of Health-funded projects: 5,000 gloves
  • Chemistry department: 4,000 gloves

Michele M. Hourigan, the director of business and community development for Oswego Health, picked up the donation earlier this week and offered thanks for the generosity of the campus community.
