A group of medical students from Burrell College of Osteopathic Medicine who are part of the Protect NM initiative in Las Cruces, donated 10,400 KN95 masks to support LCPS staff and students.

Protect NM was established by an independent group of University of New Mexico School of Medicine (UNM SOM) medical students to distribute personal protective equipment to areas in need and combat our current health crisis. Particularly, certain southern New Mexico communities and the indigenous Native American population have been adversely affected at alarming rates. With this in mind, our aim is to overcome this pandemic while keeping our neighbors and frontline workers safe.

Thank you for your partnership in keeping NM safe!
