How did ActionPPE start?
It started in Charleston, South Carolina, when the Charleston County Medical Society’s president, Dr. Marcelo Hochman initiated a call to the medical community. Together with their long-time web consultant, Tom Steenhuysen, an online purchasing form was created, and the membership across the state was notified.
Within the first 48 hours, a first group order of 28,000 PPE units was possible.
At that moment it was clear a dire need was served ~ and the idea of ActionPPE as a group buying service to organizations across the nation was born.
