Catherine Faler: Chemist and (Mask) Model

What happens when you mix a socially isolated chemist/seamstress, a public health emergency, and an impressive fabric stash? ACS-GHS member Catherine Faler reacted by spending her non-lab time sewing fabric face masks to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. To promote public safety and encourage proper PPE use in the chemistry community, Catherine offered a series of chemistry-themed face masks that were sold through the ACS-GHS with the proceeds going towards future ACS-GHS chemistry activities and outreach programs. Between May and August 2020, 95 masks were sold and sent out to safety-minded purchasers in Houston and around the US! The ACS-GHS thanks Catherine for her commitment to safety and continued contributions to the Greater Houston local section.

Some of the chemistry is a bit dodgy, but who will be close enough to read it?
