ERAE TECH, one of the “family enterprises” of Ajou University’s LINC+ Group, brought 10,000 pairs of surgical-grade nitrile gloves to the COVID-19 diagnostic station at Ajou University Medical Center as a donation. The donation was the result of a meeting between ERAE TECH CEO Lee Hyeong-seok, who is currently enrolled in the Graduate School of Clinical Pharmacy and Pharmaceutics, and Professor Kim Mi-ran, a doctor (Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology) at the medical center, who is herself a graduate of the same school.
The brief ceremony that was held before the donation was made, on June 10, featured Lee, Chairperson Han Sang-uk of the medical center, and Dean Kim Su-dong of the Graduate School of Clinical Pharmacy.
Lee explained: “We wanted to do something for our hardworking medical practitioners who are working so hard at the COVID-19 diagnostic station, and thought the best thing to do was bring something useful, like 10,000 pairs of nitrile gloves.”
