Faculty members with the UW School of Pharmacy make hand sanitizer. UW School of Pharmacy Produces Hand Sanitizer during COVID-19 Supply Shortage

As people quickly learned during the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, many household staples normally in plentiful supply suddenly vanished from grocery store shelves.

Among those products was any type of hand sanitizer. This shortage didn’t only affect individuals and families; it also impacted health care providers, including physicians in private practice, clinics, assisted living facilities and Ivinson Memorial Hospital in Laramie.

As the shortage worsened, it was unclear, in some cases, how additional supplies of sanitizer could be found.

Enter University of Wyoming School of Pharmacy Professor Sreejayan Nair. Nair had an idea of how to convert a pharmacy lab into a temporary hand sanitizer factory.

Discover how the UW School of Pharmacy was able to make their own hand sanitizer!

 

 

 

 

 

UW College of Health Sciences Facilitates Pandemic Telehealth Access

The University of Wyoming’s Wyoming Telehealth Network (WyTN) is helping health care providers virtually connect with patients to prevent the spread of and assist in the diagnosis of the COVID-19 virus.

The network is administered by the Wyoming Institute for Disabilities (WIND), a unit of the College of Health Sciences, in partnership with the Wyoming Department of Health.

The WyTN provides ongoing training and support in telehealth best practices for Wyoming health care professionals, including the process of enrolling providers in the telehealth network; issuing secure Zoom licenses; and providing technical support throughout the process. Recently, telehealth also has proven to be a critical component in allowing health care providers to virtually meet with patients, allowing for diagnosis and treatment options without the risk of exposure to the virus.

UW Student Combines Disabilities Studies, Social Work with Entrepreneurism

Students beginning their studies in the University of Wyoming Division of Social Work are immediately encouraged to embrace career goals that include creating positive change in society and promoting the health and well-being of individuals, families, organizations and communities throughout Wyoming and beyond.

For Belle Fourche, S.D., native Tea Hill, the pursuit of a second course of study added depth and a layer of human understanding that helped form a distinct career path. Hill is set to graduate this spring from the UW College of Health Sciences with a Bachelor of Social Work and a minor in disability studies, offered through the Wyoming Institute for Disabilities (WIND).

After placing third in the 2019 UW John P. Ellbogen $50K Entrepreneurship Competition, Hill was awarded $10,000 for a business model that would incorporate the knowledge and values of both her major and minor. Torch Creamery, an ice cream business whose current motto is “sugar with a mission,” was conceived by Hill and her sister Tesa as a business model that would provide inclusive employment for both individuals with and without disabilities.
