On the latest episode of History Factory Plugged In, host Jason Dressel chats with representatives from two companies that retooled their product offerings in the early months of the pandemic in order to support front-line health care workers. First, he chats with New Balance COO Dave Wheeler about how the shoe manufacturer transitioned to making PPE for staff at Mass General Hospital. Later, he speaks with MassMutual’s head of marketing and brand, Jennifer Halloran, about the insurer’s offer of free life insurance to health care workers.
