Kirksville city in Missouri‘s started a project at A.T. Still University just as Senior Caleb Flaim says, “I’m happy that the odd skills I’ve picked up over the years using 3-D printers are actually able to help people. It’s cool to see how our little tech center and its 10 3-D printers have been able to help the community in a way even the colleges haven’t been able to, just because of the resources we have.”
In accordance with Dr. Margaret Wilson, dean of ATSU’s Kirksville College of Osteopathic Medicine, “We know that one case has been identified in Adair County, so we want to be prepared for the potential increase in the number of cases. This is one extra layer of protection we can add to our health care personnel, providing them the protection they need to do their jobs.”
