UW School of Pharmacy faculty members 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!

Scot and Amy Schmidt, both University of Wyoming graduates, were fully prepared to begin their career paths as health care professionals.

That all changed when the two became owners of North Star Pharmacy and Infusion in Cheyenne. Starting in 2007, as North Star Infusion Inc., the pharmacy’s initial focus was specializing in home infusion, a therapy involving intravenous or subcutaneous administration of drugs to patients at home.

Realizing a need for a more expanded, multidisciplinary team approach to patient care with other health care providers, North Star Pharmacy joined the Community Pharmacy Enhanced Services Network in Wyoming (CPESN-WY), with Scot and Amy serving in leadership roles. The two provide guidance and assistance for a network of participating pharmacies.

“Merging our health care educations together allows us to care for the patient as a whole,” says Amy Schmidt, who graduated from UW in 1999 with a master’s degree in social work. “Patients are not just a drug or a hip or a knee. They are a whole person, and we are working hard to care for the patient over time as a whole.”
