52 in 52 – Week 4

Tue, 02/07/2017

This week’s class was the first day college class I attended.  Hematology, led by Professor Veronica Jones was very interesting.  This course is a part of the Medical Assisting Management program.  The lesson was about stopping the chain of spreading infection, wearing personal protective equipment (PPE), dealing with biohazards properly, and possible situations and how to deal with them in a lab, doctor’s office, medical center or hospital setting. 

Professor Jones has many funny stories which we all enjoyed, and the students were amazingly prepared with their assignments.  I was very impressed…and, I got out of there without having my blood drawn!  It isn’t that I wouldn’t trust our very capable students, but I am not a good guinea pig.  When I was a kid I used to faint when I got a booster shot and I would not want to faint in a classroom!

It was a great experience. 

So far, four weeks into the 52 in 52, I am enjoying ducking into classes and enjoying my time with our great faculty and wonderful students!
