March 4th 2013 at about 8:30, time to start the third session in biomed class. So I had to move from Port-au –prince to Pignon Sunday 3rd, the previous day. When we arrived there, in the same day, we could see Mrs. Ruthanne our new teacher, accompanied with a staff of white people even if we didn’t know her before we could notice that.
Monday when we got in class, Mr. Billy introduced her to the class we saw that the person that we saw the previous day was really Mrs. Ruthanne Robenson, our teacher.
At the very beginning, we could see how very meticulous she is because of the way she set the schedule for each day and the two week sessions. So she has a wonderful methodology; for that, congratulation.
Everybody really appreciate her teaching. With Mr.Evenel we could have the handout printed out into sets for the two week session, in this case, while she displays a slide show on the projector, we had the handout in hand during the course. Every morning before starting new material, we made a review over everything covered in the previous day and a quiz every other day to see what to take over before going on covering new materials.
Since, the third session was focused on lab equipments; we could get access to everything used in the lab of L’hopitale bienfaisance de Pignon, see them, and touch them. Some were brought in class to us to repair. We took them apart, learnt the common problem they could have, how to repair them; we had a solid theory and also made practice. We saw a lot of lab equipment like: microscope, cell-counter, centrifuge, spectrophotometer, pipette etc and identified all the components.
We visited the lab many times and ask the lab technician questions, we saw how to run a quality control (QC). We saw how microscope magnifies the invisible things in a sample that can’t be seen by unaided eye.
At least that’s just a summery of what we have learnt in the third session without detail.
Hence, here is the big support of rotary to the Haitian people; it is a support without precedent and no one can top that.
Thank over so much rotary.
