PPE Donations At UF Health, we are inspired by the generosity of those who want to help.

As health care professionals across the country require important personal protection equipment, or PPE, during the COVID-19 pandemic, many people have reached out to UF Health asking how they can help. We are heartened by so many in our communities and communities across the country who are finding ways to fight the coronavirus together.
