I hope you have had a wonderful holiday. My name is Kristy Dang and I'm 15 years old. I'm a sophomore at Foothill High School. Last summer, I attended a seminar you gave to BFOIT about AP Allograft. Ever since hearing your seminar, I have not stop thinking about the program.
Your message about the importance of hands-on experience is so true. We learn many things in school, but we don't learn much about how to apply the things we learn. I believe this program will do just that and make us ready for the upcoming challenges we may face in college or graduate school.
What days might you be available? What arrangements may be needed to have you come and teach at Foothill? What can I do to facilitate these arrangements? Please let me know. I really hope you consider coming to Pleasanton (about 30 minutes from Oakland) and teaching the students here.
Hope to hear from you soon, Kristy Dang - high school student
Hi Mr. Pease
This is Serena, who have recently participated in one of the lessons for your program, AP Allograft. When I first heard of this, I was immediately interested and wanted to join. Unfortunately, due to your program's popularity and the limited amount of space, I was unable to take part of your program for most of the class. However, I was blessed enough to be join in on the last class. I did not regret it, it was EYEOPENING. I was able to experience a dissection first hand, with the blade in MY hand. I would recommend this program to anyone aspiring to go in the Medical Field, it will definitely broaden their horizons. Thank you very much for letting me be a part of your program.
Sincerely, Serena - high school student
When we dissected these human tissues, we did not go in blind. The key part of this class was the lecture before the dissection because that's when we learned the various parts of each tissue/organ. Regular class dissections like preserved sheep hearts just can't compare to the dissection of a fresh human heart; it's not the same. Dissecting the human heart was truly an amazing experience.
