Haworth College of Business
The uniqueness of our DrinkThru Mask caught the attention of the director who selects the senior class projects for the Haworth College of Business at Western Michigan University in Kalamazoo, MI. This prompted them to choose Smart Mask Technologies to be their 2016 project. The class prepared a report addressing several topics of interest, in the report they highlighted statistics from the CDC “The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that more than two million people in the United States are sickened every year with antibiotic-resistant infections, with at least 75,000 dying (2013) as a result. Healthcare Associated Infections (HAI) kill more people in this country than AIDS, breast cancer and auto accidents combined. Due to the rising number of infections and deaths due to airborne pathogens, Smart Mask Technologies can capitalize on the market. They can become not only a premier partner with hospitals, but save lives in the process”.
