Thanks to the humanitarian efforts of Northport High School science teachers Karyn Libretto and George Reamy, doctors and medical personnel at the Department of Internal Medicine at Jacobi have been supplied with more than 300 protective goggles.
The teachers rallied together with their colleagues to collect and donate goggles through Goggles for Docs – an effort to get protective supplies into the hands of healthcare workers during the coronavirus pandemic.
In a letter of appreciation, the Department of Internal Medicine at Jacobi wrote, “It has been an overwhelming joy for all the residents to feel the support coming from various individuals who took the time to collect protective supplies that they do not use, package them and mail them at their own expense. Organizations like Goggles for Docs, that realized the complicated supply chain protocol of hospitals, have literally saved lives. Thank you for your immediate readiness to help.”
