Shields built Ford tough

Resident Brendan Caprio, MD, displays a face shield that Ford Motor Co. donated to the Department of Medicine. When Ford started making shields for health-care workers, WashU third-year medical student Rebecca Chen reached out to her parents, both Ford employees, to see if they could put in a request for Washington University. Voilà! Boxloads of shields have arrived on campus and will be distributed where they are needed most.
