Pandemic Responders: Covid-19 Speaker Series - Shreyes Dugar
Show Notes

Shreyes Dugar is a 3rd-year student studying finance and economics alongside a minor in environmental economics in the Rotman Commerce program at the University of Toronto St George Campus. He started a project called HandAssure that aims to revolutionize one’s hygiene game by reminding the user to wash their hands at regular time intervals. HandAssure further ensures constant motivation by allowing you to track your handwash progress. With good handwashing practices waiting for you just at a tap of your fingers, HandAssure is ready to bring about a significant lifestyle change. So, let the handwashing begin!

You can find HandAssure on the Google Play and iOS App Store.

This interview is part of our Covid-19 Speaker Series, which highlights the work of University of Toronto students who were recipients of the COVID-19 Student Engagement Award. The COVID-19 Student Engagement Award provided financial support to University of Toronto students developing innovative projects that have contributed to the response to the COVID-19 crisis. 

This series was envisioned by and carried out by Iram Iram, Ajla Behri, Feroza Tareen, and Ebube Umeano, student staff in our Leadership and Co-Curricular Record team, with some editing assistance from Jonathan Collaton, the regular host of The Meeting Place.
