Summary of project We arranged for Kevin Pancratz from the Medical Store to facilitate an equipment sale for first year students. During a lunchtime session with pizza and pop, he, along with representatives from 3M and Welch Allyn, demonstrated the available equipment and combination packages (stethoscopes, oto/ophthalmoscopes, sphygmomanometers, etc.). Then, for the remainder of the afternoon students were able to sample the equipment first-hand in a display room.
