Ramapo’s nursing alumni are among those working on the front lines of the COVID pandemic. Alumnae April Dela Cruz ’10 (pictured), Caitlin Burke ’09 and their colleagues in the critical care units at The Valley Hospital in Ridgewood, N.J., are staying strong and helping to protect lives.
Physics Lab Continues to Make an Impact
Working from the College's physics lab, Ihor Sydoryk, Engineering Physics Lab Coordinator, Kamil Starczak, Biology Lab Coordinator and Edward Saiff, dean of Ramapo’s School of Theoretical and Applied Science, continue to produce 3D-printed face shield components for protective masks for front-line health care workers. The collaborative project, of which Ramapo is a part, includes 45 schools and small and big businesses combining their efforts. The result to date has been the creation of nearly 5,000 protective medical masks.
