Sanford Brown Pittsburgh Clinical Case Transplantation PresentationOn Wednesday, August 14 the dialysis technician students held their second clinical case transplantation presentation for a group of faculty and students at the Sanford Brown Institute of Pittsburgh campus. Two teams led by group leaders Michelle Longstreth and Charlynn Goode both presented on topics such as complicated diabetes and polycystic kidney disease. Dialysis and the transplantation process were also discussed in detail by various group members. The interactive presentation was well received by both faculty and students. One of the medical assistant students, Eureka Branson commented by saying "I never knew that diabetes could lead to destruction of the kidney; it was interesting"

The presentation was facilitated by Dr. Rommel Gonzaga, lead instructor of general education. The two teams were assessed by both the audience and their individual group members. More than 40 staff and students attended the presentation.

Representatives from both career services and the registrar were also present including director of career services Ms. Danette Rocco. Dr. Gonzaga who started the clinical case presentations comments on the presentation: "Group presentations are an excellent way to not only assess how much the student has learned over the past five weeks, but also teaches them to be accountable for their own work and how to work in a team environment". "Having this experience will be invaluable for their externships and hopefully for future employment."
