Occidental College professor Mary Beth Heffernan works with ambulance crews at the National Mandingo Caucus of Liberia in Jacob Town, Monrovia, Liberia on Tuesday, March 3, 2015. Professor Heffernan’s PPE Portrait Project involves creating wearable portraits of health care workers who must wear PPE, or personal protective equipment. The National Mandingo Caucus of Liberia is an ambulance service that removes dead bodies, in addition to people injured and sick, so crews must wear PPE to help stop the spread of Ebola and other diseases. Ambulance companies, such as this one, must gain the trust of the community in which they are based and hope that placing their images on their PPEs will help. <br />
