Texas A&M University student organization BUILD, which converts shipping containers into medical clinics, has sent one of its clinics to Houston-area Memorial Hermann Hospital to be used in COVID-19 testing.

The students said they are incredibly proud to be able to offer this support.

“BUILD is so thrilled and honored to partner with Memorial Hermann in such a challenging time,” said Abby Launikitis ’21, BUILD CEO. “Our Texas Aggie Medical Clinics (TAMCs) may seem like a drop in the bucket, but we are trying to send them out to help as many people as possible. We are so grateful to all our sponsors big and small for supporting BUILD and allowing us this amazing opportunity to aid in the fight against COVID-19.”

Launikitis said another four clinics are being eyed to send out with destination locations currently being considered.

Past efforts by the organization include a clinic in Laredo, Texas, and 12 clinics dedicated to the 12 Aggies who perished in the Bonfire collapse.
