After weeks of sheltering in place, Berkeley bioengineers are only increasing their efforts to mitigate the effects of COVID-19.
To help people in need during the times of the coronavirus epidemic, 4 UC Berkeley and UCSF students, Nitasha Goyal, Marchel Schaack, Marie Rajon Bernard and Oluwatoni Adetayo, have launched a platform called SF Food Friends. This platform connects low-risk individuals with homebound people (sick, immunocompromised or elderly) in their neighborhood to provide assistance for grocery shopping, buying essential items or medications, delivering food, and mental support during this time of isolation. Goyal is a Master of Translational Medicine Student, and Schaak is pursuing an M.Eng. in bioengineering.
