Alumni in China donate PPE to Medical Campus

Washington University alumni in China came together to provide disposable masks and other PPE for health-care workers on the Washington University Medical Campus. Altogether, 256 Chinese alumni and parents from various schools at Washington University have contributed a total of $61,000. The funds were used to purchase 45,000 face masks, which arrived April 10. The remaining money was directed to Washington University to allow flexibility to purchase additional medical supplies as needed. The effort was led by Kevin Xu, EMBA Shanghai ’14, chair of the China Alumni Network, Bill Xu, head of the university’s China Office for International Affairs, and the university’s International Advancement team.
