1.   Suppliers - with PPE equipment (N-95 masks, surgical masks, ventilators, isolation gowns, etc.) to be connected with the health care providers in need.

2.   Manufacturers/small businesses - to be connected with subject matter experts for help in distributing excess capacity, repurposing equipment, or packaging.
