We Made It! But We Aren't Done Yet..

February 19, 2020

THANK YOU, you have helped us fund the creation of the AU Med-Pak!


We are now able to move forward in this exciting endeavor and begin to concentrate on what the next phase will entail. Any additional funds raised will be used to develop and research a finalized version of the AU Med-Pak. We hope to include portable electricity to test contagious diseases like HIV, Ebola, and the Coronavirus in remote regions. Your generosity will allow Auburn University to further their goal of providing healthcare to those who cannot access it.

February 19, 2020

Tiger Giving Day is finally here! 


Thank you to all of our supporters for allowing us to be 75% to goal already! Your generosity and Auburn spirit is unbelievable. Please check back to see how we are doing throughout the day and remember to share our project on social media. With your help, we will not only be able to create these 12 backpacks to be field tested but also prepare to create the finalized version this fall.

Tiger Giving Day Officially Begins Tomorrow | Already Halfway to Goal

February 18, 2020

As we prepare for Tiger Giving Day to officially begin tomorrow, we are already halfway to our goal! Thank you for supporting the AU Med-Pak and making this possible. This morning, Scott Kramer discussed the project and its implications with Auburn University alumni, staff, and faculty at an on-site event. He discussed how the $8,000 goal is intended to create 12 backpacks to be tested across the world in very remote regions. It was also mentioned that if the goal is met, all additional funds will be used this fall semester to create the finalized version of the AU Med-Pak which he hopes to include portable, rechargeable electricity. This will allow remote medical professionals to test for HIV, Ebola, and the Coronavirus in regions they previously could not. We are beyond excited about this project and THANK YOU for being a part of it.


Aubie was so excited that he took a picture with Scott holding one of the original prototypes. War Eagle!

30% to Goal!

February 17, 2020

We are now 30% to our $8,000 goal!


Thank you for supporting a fantastic project that involves collaboration between Industrial Design and the McWhorter School of Building Science. Please continue to share our project with your friends, family, and colleagues so we can get the support needed to create these specialized backpacks for remote medical professionals throughout the world.
