Summary of project The Medical Store came to our school to sell our students medical instruments and supplies. I had contacted Kevin Pancratz during the summer to give him our school supply list. We had a meeting during the first week of school where he gave a lunch presentation to the students. He also had opthalmascopes people come. He had most of the supplies on hand so people could walk away with their purchase, which I think medical students liked - people able to check out the merchandise and then decide what to buy and be able to take it away with them right away. Kevin was very easy to work with - he gave instructions on what he needed and how officers could help with the process to make it go smoothly. Some of the material ran out so he sent it to us.
