The fourth episode of "WVU and the Coronavirus" is now available for download on Apple Podcasts and Spotify.
In our fourth episode, we talk to Elizabeth Shorrock, a visiting assistant professor of Fashion, Dress & Merchandising at the Davis College of Agriculture, Natural Resources and Design. She launched an effort in March to create masks for healthcare providers and others in need.

She shares how the idea was generated, how she and a group of students worked during the pandemic, and how gratifying the experience has been.

In this interview-driven series, “WVU and the Coronavirus” will examine what we already know about COVID-19, find out the latest information about the virus, explore how RNA viruses like coronaviruses work, and learn how the University community has responded to the global pandemic.

Previous episodes feature Dr. Lisa Costello, who discusses the basics of COVID-19; Dr. Ivan Martinez, who talks about RNA viruses; and Dr. Clay Marsh, who is the Vice President and Executive Dean of Health Sciences and has served as West Virginia's COVID-19 Czar.

Written by Stacey Elza, Wendy Holdren and David Ryan. Narrated by David Ryan. Sound mixed by Sean Hines.
