Yesterday Risa had a tour and joined Harvey's gang at UHS
Risa visited the University Southampton hospital laboratory for a Harvey's gang tour yesterday.
Risa is 17 and post kidney transplant (2015) and has fortnightly plasma exchange (she came down to the laboratory following her exchange). Risa has had nearly 600 units of plasma during her treatment at UHS so far and has a deep interest in how science works and is currently doing Chemistry A level at college.
Risa had loads of questions. She was really interested in how plasma is produced, but it was when she looked down the microscope at her own blood film that her face really lit up.
Risa was tired from treatment, but she had an awesome tour and we don’t think she wanted to leave!
Welcome and Well done Risa; and good luck with your A levels.
Also in other great news the Institute of Biomedical Science (IBMS) have announced Harvey's gang on their e-mail to members:
IBMS say: Some of you may already be familiar with the work of Malcolm Robinson but for those of you that don't know about Institute of Biomedical Science announces Harvey's gang I recommend that you read about our CEO, Jill Rodney's visit last week. A truly inspiring initiative which we can all learn from.
Thank you Jill, Ian and Dan
