Immediate Opportunity to Support NYC Hospitals

Hi Everyone,

We are reaching out to share an immediate work opportunity to help support NYC’s health care workers.

Triumvirate Environmental is looking for individuals to assist with Respirator Fit Testing at all the major New York City hospital networks.  This is a great opportunity for those looking to start a career in Public Health, as well as a chance to help our city battle the Corona Virus crisis.
