    When Michigan State University (MSU) Professor Laura Bix thinks about a disease outbreak, she thinks about minimizing mistakes, what a Hazmat suit feels like, and how a healthcare professional might administer medication and medical devices in such a suit.

    That’s what she and a team of MSU professionals will bring to the fourth Healthcare Packaging Immersion Event (HcPIE). The HcPIE is a joint venture of MSU’s state-of-the-art Healthcare Simulation Facility, the Learning and Assessment Center and the School of Packaging. Geared to health care and packaging professionals, the event is slated for Oct. 12-13 on MSU’s campus.
